The garden is an ever changing thing. Each year there are different layouts, new plants and I try to rotate the crops so that my soil does not become depleted. As I have become more serious about actually producing food I have come to realize how difficult farming is and how uncontrollable the outcome. This year I am hopeful for some really good food and I have planted foods that I know I will eat and that I cook with. As you decided what to plant try to think of meals, your likes things that your kids will eat. I know that sounds so basic but when you are at your local garden center or browsing a seed catalog everything looks amazing and its easy to get caught up in looks not what you really eat. Its a common flaw we all have so you are not alone.
