With January quickly coming to an end, it's time to start planning this years' vegetable and flower garden.
I know it must sound silly, but I actually get giddy thinking about the new seed catalog. Do you get excited thumbing through the pages?
Yesterday, the much anticipated catalog arrived !
I started ordering my seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds when I still owned the farm. Click HERE, if you would like to order their free catalog, or just browse the online catalog.
So tonight, after dinner, I will begin my 2015 Garden Plans. I know my eyes will be bigger than my budget.
What fun it is to grow something new from a faraway land, like the Kajari Melon. It is believed to originate in the Punjab region of India.
In the meantime, I still have a few herbs growing.
Even with the temperatures dipping in the 20's, I have managed to keep parsley, cilantro, chives, and sage growing. I simply cover them with a large clay pot, protecting them during the night.
The Iceland Poppy (Papaver) offers some cool weather blooms.
Also, the ornamental cabbage thrives through the cool nights.
And best of all, I will soon have a pot of blooming narcissus
to cheer me on....
