6 am and we're having a thunderstorm right now. (Ginny is underneath the desk at my feet. She hates thunder.)
Looking outside in the pre-dawn hours, I can see that my backyard is a soaked sponge. Standing water. 24 hours of rain. The dogs "tippy-toe" to do their business. (At least it's better than snow!)
What a difference a week makes. Last weekend, 65 degrees and yard work. The glory of a blue sky, warm sunshine day!
This weekend cabin fever for all. (Even the freaking cat wants to be chased through the house at 3am.)
February has always been my least favorite month out of the year. It's a "bridge" to spring for sure but geez...28 days have never moved by so slowly. February was the reason we moved south. Just couldn't take it anymore!
I need a distraction!
Thank God for YOUR blogs.
And thank goodness for seed catalogs!
I got my Baker Creek catalog in this week.
I don't think there's a prettier catalog on the planet. Even SM has been spotted perusing the catalog...day dreaming. Look at those colors!
And the varieties! Who knew?
So, pretty pictures aside, I'd like some feedback. What Baker Creek varieties have you tried that you liked?
I've got plenty of seeds to start this years garden, but the Baker Creek catalog is like looking at a New York Cheesecake...You know you shouldn't but you just can't help yourself.
Oh yes...I'm buying! I'd just like to hear of any "must haves" that ya'll have tried.
