jocoyn Haha yes I'm a little bit behind as usual ..... Except for the rutabegas my winter vegetables fared poorly

Pawsed Yes, it's time to start the spring garden plants inside. I have cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower seedlings now emerging.

Cheyanna Yes, start seedlings now. You might need artificial light. The chickens kill most of my garden. I have random tomatoes growing now. I had tossed old tomatoes in the compost and then bam tomatoes grow. I am going to start preparing the soil for planting. Luckily I don't have no snow covering my dirt.

Girl_Loves_Hydraulics Bringing this back to life....I know I gotta start planting some seedlings indoors. Is it too early for me to do that now? I am suspecting that perhaps by end of March/April that it "should" be warm enough to start moving them outside. I also have to be more strategic this year and keep an eye on my plants. The girls managed to kill quite a few of them. I think this is the year I start off with a lot more seedlings then I did previously. I only planted like 8 tomatoes of which 6 made it alive. By the end of the season, I had 2 lol.

Girl_Loves_Hydraulics Well just an update my bonnie red germinated indoors and seems to be doing ok. My jalapeno is holding up well also. Its even dropping a couple peppers but definitely not like during high summer. My strawberries are well, but no flowers but putting off growth. This is ok with me...

Pawsed I told a friend that next year I'm just going to grow dog food for us all! They get meat in addition to the veggies, though, and we rarely eat that. Not vegetarians, just not very interested in meat. As far as we are concerned, it's hard to beat fresh produce.

The dogs also pick their own raspberries and apples. I haven't been successful growing melons, but the older dog loves watermelon, too.
Thank you for sharing...I love green beans myself, so will maybe grow a much larger crop next year to add to the girl's diet

I also picked more raspberries and made raspberry cobbler for dessert last night. I think that may be the last of those, but I've thought that the last 3 times I've picked them. At this point they look pretty well depleted, so I may be right this time.

I've dug half the sweet potatoes and it looks like it's time to harvest the rest. I planted Beauregards and Georgia Jets, and the Beaus got burned with a cool spell several days ago. The Jets have held up better and are just now looking a little worn.

I picked a dozen fall cabbages already, and one broccoli. I'm not sure how the other fall plants will fare, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for those.

All in all, it's been an amazing run. The freezer is well stocked and garage shelves are loaded with filled jars. Butternuts are curing on the garage floor. I'm sure we will never get through all that we have put up.
Do you incorporate any of the sweet potatoes or melons into your dog's diet? Not a huge melon fan or sweet potato fan either, but wouldn't mind having some to just add a different dimension to feeding...
