Christmas, yes, that's wonderful. I like it, I really do. And planning for spring planting is part of that! This year Mother Earth News did an article on people's favorite seed companies.
Seed catalogs have this amazing, kid-in-a-candy-store type affect on me. I requested a few new ones, but Nichols Garden Nursery's got to me first (along with my old stand-by Southern Exposure). I want to get seeds in the ground ASAP so the rest will have to wait until I'm thinking of my fall garden.
So I ordered a lot. I was low on a few types and, of course, I have to try new things. I'm an absolute sucker for a seed catalog. And Nichols had such interesting unique stuff- such that I hadn't even seen at Baker Creek! I made a long list for both Nichols and Southern Exposure and now am waiting anxiously, very anxiously, for them to arrive.
I salivate just thinking about it.
But for record keeping sake, here's my orders. I know... I got a lot. As I said, its totally a weakness, but I don't go clothes shopping. I don't wear make-up. I haven't bought new shoes in 5 years. Indulge me my seeds, ok?
