Spring catalogs are a huge temptation for me - and for my kids. Each winter, the bursts of color that shine from the pages make me want to far exceed my little garden's capacity.
I tend to shop organic, heirloom and local for my seeds (yes, it's possible in Indiana), so we just recently placed our first of likely three orders. And I had to chuckle when, just a few days later, our package arrived with a note apologizing for the delay!
This year, we're branching out from our usual suspects. Though I'm hoping to avoid a garden full of onions like last year, last season expanded our children's repretoire, with a few surprising additions. So we're adding okra, bok choy, Indiana heirloom tomatoes, and if I can find seeds, ground cherries to our mix.
What are you trying out in the garden this year?
Wishing you an end to the doldrums of winter,
