The first seed catalog arrives!!!!!
A perfect day for it! I has rained for a week and is now snowing, just a dusting to cover the ground. I went out to the garden and jury rigged the gap in the fence where the deer seem to be getting in. I found the gate open, but didn't see tracks in or out, so I locked the gate and put chicken wire over the fence gaps and called it good and then came back to the warm house and found the seed catalog.
There's nothing quite as satisfying as sitting warm and cozy indoors, watching it snow and thumbing through pictures of great garden bounty. It's one of those times when anything is possible and the reality of insects, critters, disease, pests or other failures are not in the fantasy of this year's perfect garden!
"Seeds of Change began with a simple mission: to preserve biodiversity and promote sustainable, organic agriculture. By cultivating and disseminating an extensive range of organically grown vegetable, flower, herb and cover crop seeds, we have honored that mission for 20 years." All of their seeds are organic and some are recently developed varieties, like "Blush", a tomato just now released for sale after being lauded for having really remarkable flavor.
Prices in this catalog are high. A 4 ft apple tree bare root sells for $41.50. Seeds are also pricey. There are many garden tools, heating mats, and an interesting roll your own seed pots which makes starter seed pots out of newspaper! There's a lovely Tiger's Eye heirloom bean that looks like it could be strung for a necklace. And there is page after page of the gorgeous fruits and vegetables, enough to make you hungry for spring.
