Whoo! Hoo!….Seed catalogs are starting to roll in.

Love, Love, Love looking at all the beautiful pictures.

(I know there are those diehards out there who like to argue that catalogs aren’t the ‘greenest’ route for this reason or that, but from someone who only gets a small handful of catalogs in a year, anyway….I’ll honestly say that I look forward to getting a few of these in the mail…it’s just not the same looking at things on the computer.)

Flipping through these colorful pages makes me want to be able to grow one of everything.

Yep, they create a desire to ‘buy’, but they also inspire, motivate and educate.  Every image celebrates good health, a bountiful earth, and all the good that can come from ‘working the land’.   They make you want to revel in all that nature has to offer. All the delicious possibilities.  And if I’m going to buy something, it doesn’t get any better than things I can grow in my garden.

I know it’s not even January yet, but spring will be here before I know it and I want to be READY…plus it’s fun to dream, plan and imagine all that I could get growing with my own two hands.

My gardens never seem to live up to my elaborate winter ‘dreams’, but I always go into it thinking THIS IS THE YEAR! :)

What’s your favorite seed source?  What dreams do you have for your garden this year?

Cheers to a couple of fun Seed Pondering Thoughts…

The seeds of knowledge may be planted in solitude, but must be cultivated in public
Samuel Johnson quotes

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson

    When it’s too nasty to go outside, it’s nice to curl up with the seed catalogs and dream of warm weather and being in the garden again. Pinetree Garden Seeds is one of my favorite catalogs. The seed packets are smaller, geared for the home gardner and priced cheaper so you can experimint with new varieties.

    Great perspective. I keep my catalogs all year and reference from them when it comes to time plant. It is a nice resource to have all of the info in one spot. Then I do a little thing called recycling when I am done with them and the new ones come. I like Baker Creek and Territorial as well as Nichols. Lots of great organic seed and non-GMO choices.
