Every year right around December 25th I get one of my favorite things in the mail. The Burpee Seed Catalog. I set it aside until the madness is over and then I pour over that catalog, dog-earing pages and day dreaming about the amazing garden I'm going to have.
Eventually I toss it into the recycling without ordering one seed. But this morning as I went through the catalog I made a list of seeds to order. I haven't placed the order yet, but I'm going too. I'm starting small -- some herbs, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, cucumbers, radishes, carrots.
Damn. I guess I'm not starting small.
The thing about living in Georgia is that spring really is just around the corner. As soon as the holidays are over I find myself wandering around the backyard daydreaming about all the things I could do.
This year I'm going to try and do some of them.
