Now the days are much warmer. We suddenly have 70 degree temps, and I'm thinking it's global warming, but could be wrong. Anyway, with this warm weather, some of my perennials are coming up. The trees are budding, so of course, I'm tempted to plant things, but I won't, until the end of March.

I saved a lot of seeds from last year, and got some from my Dad. I have several varieties to plant. I figured it would save money if I harvested seeds.

I have a lot of old tires around. Last year I used them for planters, and now I read an article online about placing them two or three high,making paths around them and using them for a raised garden effect. I am going to do that. The tires provide warmth for the plants, and preserve moisture. Last year, everything I planted in them grew so much and so well, and I will use a lot of my compost for planting soil this time. That should make a difference too!
