|Cultivating my green thumb|
This year I went with my great-grandfather's recipe of planting according to the phases of the moon by syncing my Lunar Energy Chart from The Darling Tree (if you want one, scroll all the way to the bottom & sign up for her mailing list to get the free file sent to your inbox), with the Farmers' Almanac to produce the ultimate seed planting guide for 2016 that I can print out and keep in my All Things Gardening 3-ring binder. Oh, didn't you know? I'm a complete nerd, and this seeps into my gardening life as well (and by "seeps" I mean, flows like a mighty river).
If you're interested in trying to grow your own food, my go-to online heirloom seed stores are: The Garden Hoard & Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
Give it a whirl, and see what happens!
