Have you looked at Seed Savers Exchange? I'm not sure how the swapping works there...

Never experienced it myself although it looks interesting! I recently read an article in organic gardening about gardening through the winter months - talks you through dealing with snow and ice and how that weather can even make your veggies taste better
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Organic Gardening - help on where to start on: July 08, 2011 08:24:01 AM
Hi everyone. I have been doing small bits of gardening here and there for the last few years. Lately I've been reading more about our food supply and our family has recently gone 100% organic. Obviously this can get really pricey so we are relocating to a lower cost of living area to both be closer to family as well as have the option to buy cheaper land in a part of the country which has a better growing searson (zone 7!).

We aren't going to get our garden going this summer (obviously) but I'm a planner and realize that before I know it we'll be transplanting those seeds! We/I want to do raised beds and plant enough to feed a family of 4 with a little extra to donate to a local food bank if we can. I recognize that I'm overly ambitious, but I also know that I can scale back if I've planned too big the first year.

My question is where to start? I know we want to do raised beds, companion planting, compost ourselves. I've read tons of information, but honestly and trying to sort everything out in my head about the companion planting, succession planting, spring/summer/fall planting and I'm getting a bit overwhelmed. Any tips? Are there any great plans out there, layouts, software? Any tips, pictures, suggestions or words of encouragement are greatly appreciated!

**swoon** My 3 year old requests this book almost every night before bed. We love it. He always holds his hand out to catch the last truffula seed on the last page. He would go crazy over this mural - fantastic job!

Wowsa! this is beautiful! I'm not sure where you "screwed up" cause it looks great to me. I love the fabrics and the design *** wisted *** any tips on the sides? I've been wanting to try something like that but have been intimidated.

Hi ladies - this is the third quilt I've made, and definitely the most complicated so far (though it's only a version of 9 patch...).

I think I'll do a solid border, and not sure yet about backing. But I've been collecting these gorgeaous 5" charm squares I've gotten on ebay - and now I think it will be a quilt for my first baby due in June (no idea the gender, but since it's full of bright colors I think it would work for a boy or girl - what do you think?)

So, comments welcome (and since I can't figure out how to put the image directly in the post... all I can do is a link... if anyone has a tip on getting the picture from flickr directly on here I'm all ears)

Ohh...great question. I've already sent the bag to my sis (she got it yesterday and mom said she already threw out her old one she liked this one so much!).

I followed the tute here for the outside exactly, but I added a pocket on the outside back, and then two elastic pockets the width of the side on the inside and then one pocket on the back side of the inner...does that make sense?
