Thoughts while entering a new garden year. . .

I don't have to can cowboy candy this summer.  We have plenty from last year to eat up.

Corn.  Well, I have plenty in the freezer, but I noticed I can freeze it in smaller amounts. I may buy the same amount this year but gift my Mom some of it (frozen and fresh).

Green peppers.  We have two bags left in the freezer and we were so happy to not have to buy any from harvest up until this last bag is gone.  So happy we planted so many.

Garlic.  We are still enjoying last year's harvest.  I will most likely need to make garlic powder this coming fall.

I'd like to locate a new meat supplier to stock that up this year.  Organic/non-gmo of course.

I'd like to plant popcorn this year.  We didn't the last few years due to weather issues.

We exhausted our frozen tomatoes a while back.  I'll need to up that number this year. 

We are still getting asparagus, but will be planting more this year.
