Seed catalogs. Every gardener gets them each winter. Every photo of every vegetable, fruit, flower, and herb looks incredible, and conjures images of warm summer sunshine, eating at a picnic table, working the dirt...it's like an escape from the gray, dreary landscape of winter. At least, it is for me!
This is my first year of requesting and receiving seed catalogs on a large scale. This is also the first
Botanical Interests, and just placed a second order for more seeds from High Mowing Seeds. I chose these two companies for several reasons: they offer a large selection of organic and heirloom seeds, they are both part of the safe seed pledge, they each had some really unique plants that I hadn't seen before, and very importantly, they both offered free shipping. Plus, I absolutely love the packages of seed from Botanical Interests--an artist draws each plant for the packet, and they are just beautiful; I think I'll keep the packets to display after planting! I still have more plants and seeds to purchase, but the rest can be found locally, so I think I'm done with mail orders.

So, I'm ready to go! All we need is some warmer weather. Are you starting to plan for your garden yet? Comment below!
