Joys of February

I am positively thrilled to see the arrival of February.  It’s a dull, dreary, cold month, for certain.  But its arrival brings us one step closer to my favorite time of year – SPRING!

February is also great, because you can pour over all of those seed catalogs you’ve been hoarding all winter and actually order something!  Dreams are about to come true, folks.  Seed season is here and planting season is soon to follow.  Therein lie the joys of February.

My current seed catalog of choice is the Bakers Creek Whole Seed Catalog.  Its a veritable tome of all things seed.  If you can dream it up, Bakers Creek can put it into your hands.  It’s a gorgeous catalog, chock full of inspirational photography of the most magnigicent gardening variety.

It also has some helpful, straight forward articles to help you along your garden path.  I appreciate an article that is inspiring and encouraging, and these fit the bill.

It’s time to start thinking about running a seed inventory, gathering compost, soil, and tools, and getting ready to get some seeds started.  Tomatoes, peppers, and various nightshades are definitely on my list of seeds to start indoors.  What are yours?
