Time to start the garden

I want a different kind of garden this year with some new goodies to enjoy. I am trying to decide just what we should plant, though.

We really would love to do a bit more canning this year, so I want to plant vegetables that are prime for canning. This way they will last longer. That also means our garden will be significantly larger this year around. We will do our standard stuff that we like a lot, as well as the new veggies. I have a lot of research to do on the best crops to plant as well as care, planting and harvesting information that is necessary.

Fresh veggies go bad quickly if they are not either frozen or canned right away. I have decided to get a deep freezer so we can freeze veggies as well as canning them.  The garage is large enough to hold it successfully and I have already picked out the space for it. It will definitely come in handy this coming year when the garden begins producing. I don’t mind giving away some fresh veggies to family and friends but I would really like to be able to keep a bit more of it this time around.
