Boy, writing "2019" is gonna take a little time to get used to...

Hope this finds you well & dreaming of your spring garden. Seed catalogs are coming out. I received the 1st one about a month ago.

Here in North(ish) Georgia we've had rain. LOOOOTTTTTSSSSS of rain. We're sitting about a foot over to end last year. I know many of us are in the same boat. (Sometimes literally, with the flooding I've heard about!)

IF you're able to get into your garden, there's stuff that you can be doing according to Gardenate.com:

Planting now in January for the USA - Zone 7
Broccoli Start undercover in seed trays and plant out in 4-6 weeks Harvest from April
Cabbage Sow seed Harvest from April
Carrot Sow seed Harvest from May
Celery Start undercover in seed trays and plant out in 4-6 weeks Harvest from June
Kale (also Borecole) Start undercover in seed trays and plant out in 4-6 weeks Harvest from April
Lettuce Sow seed Harvest from April
Mustard greens (also gai choy) Sow seed Harvest from March
Onion Sow seed Harvest from August
Potato Plant seed potatoes Harvest from June
Radish Sow seed Harvest from March
Spinach (also English spinach) Sow seed Harvest from March
Turnip Sow seed Harvest from April

A lot of it is direct sowing, so watch the weather report before you go out there....

And I'll be honest. I'm seriously considering going ahead & getting a jump start on tomatoes, etc so that I can get them out as quickly as possible. I'm guessing this is what the commercial growers are doing right now. Just gotta make sure I have sufficient larger pots to upgrade them too.

Anyone thinking about vermicomposting or soldier fly composting this year? Would love to see your set-up! This is something I've wanted to do for a while...

Will you be using plastic jugs over the sowed seeds? Or go natural?

As far as vermicomposting, you can just put the worms in the beds with good compost. The worms will produce their castings in place. Or use the PVC worm tubes and feed kitchen scraps.

We have had nothing but rain and overcast skies for what seems like weeks and weeks.  And it is not supposed to clear up until Saturday.  I finally had to cover my compost pile to keep it from becoming waterlogged.

I have garlic and carrots and peas planted now.  Along with some cover crops on most of the other beds.

No, I'm thinking just do my indoor seeding & keep up-potting till the season catches up with me. I can put them on the deck during the day if necessary.

I've been investigating making a worm bin on youtube. I think I've got all the supplies (except worms, lol!). And it's, again, something I can keep on the deck. AND I've got pvc for making worm tubes in the beds! I just gotta get the beds cleaned up & out.... Yeah....

Yolos, good for you! I always love looking at your garden!
