One of the highlights of a true gardeners winter (and mine) is when the seed catalogs begin arriving right after the first of the year. Its when the deadlock of winter releases its hold and those that love to sink their hands into rich loam, start dreaming of next summer's garden. Its like the Sears Wish Book for gardeners.
Now that I live in Nevada, my plant choices have to be a little more selective, but I go over the perennials and see what I can add to my garden. I check out the vegetable seeds and decide what I want to grow. I start a list and decide what I want to do the same or perhaps do differently.
Its also a time to learn more about different plants, composting, and insect control. It refreshes the soul.
