Garden Dreams

January in New England?

When my backyard looks like this, it is hard to believe it is approaching February. Sure, we have had snow, but it has still come back to this not-quite-winter-looking winter view.

Just a few of my seed catalogs

However, I definitely know it is January when the mailbox gives me these.

This month is always the time when the seed catalogs start coming in. When I dream that my 60+ square feet of garden beds will provide the bountiful produce that I always dream about.

Of course, it also makes me want another hundred feet of garden space and spring weather. I guess one out of two isn't bad?
