A part of it is most certainly because I am a very excited dreamer. I love dreaming about the future and how I would like things to turn out. The other reason is because, quite honestly, now is the time. To start onion seeds indoors they need to be started by the end of this month. If we want to get some chickens butchered by no later than the middle of April, we have to get chicks mid February. From now until about April is when most farmers plan on their goats freshening and having their kids. I wish I could pretend it was a pain, planning my garden and other adventures, but I can't. I love it.
So that is how these first few days of 2013 have been spent. Looking over heirloom seed catalogs, trying to figure out if I really will be able to manage goats, and if I really can find a better way to raise chickens. Of course as spring approaches, I start thinking about the decorating I'd like to get done, and how to best get things spring cleaned around here.
I'm getting close to making final decisions on what I'm planting in the garden, along with some goat and poultry decisions. I hope, hope, hope to share those with you soon, if I can just hurry up and decide!
So what about you? Are you planning for spring yet, or are you just enjoying these magic winter days? Share in the comments below!
