The Joy of Seed Catalogs

Seed catalogs begin arriving in late December. I often put them aside until late January or early February, then take them out and begin dreaming of all the gorgeous vegetables and flowers I will sow, plant and harvest!

I received this Rose Is Rose comic strip in my email today. It seems especially appropriate this year with all the snow (30" alone from the blizzard) and frigid temperatures we have had. Will the days of shorts, warm sunshine, birds singing, and green grass return?

I have selected what I would like to purchase, now I need to discuss the list with my husband, who will help me pare it down a bit. I'm always overly optimistic about how much I can plant and maintain!

What will you planting in your garden this year?


  1. I have ordered and received my seeds already from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds in Mansfield, MO, near where I live. Weeeeee... HOWEVAH, the snow is a bit deep at the moment... :-)) Mimi
