Tuesday, March 20, 2012 marks the first day of Spring. For the gardeners out there, it is time to start thinking about which seeds to plant this season and the layout of your crops.

After doing our research we decided to go with Willis Orchard Company. We ended up ordering the following:
In our house we eat lots of fruits and vegetables. It was a big investment up front, however, after thinking to myself, I spend over $100 in one summer on fruits and these trees would be around for several years. In addition to our fruit trees I have also plotted a 20x40 rectangle of our yard to have a nice big garden. Here are some items of inspiration for my garden.
