The seeds are on their way!

For us, late fall and winter are seasons to get crafty for the upcoming holidays, shop from our pantry, reflect on our year and plan plan plan. Holidays are behind us and the good Lord knows we reflected…so now for the planning mode–seed ordering! A few weeks ago, I placed an order with Seed Savers.  It was so much fun to go through all the cool seeds and select the ones we will be harvesting come spring and summer.  I tend to go into my own little world when I order seeds, and have many visions about the upcoming garden.  I reread that sentence and sure, it sounds like I am crazy, but its true–I go to my happy place!

Last year, we used up most of our seed reserve, so this year, we needed everything.  I also ordered some additional seeds for people in our community–a small co-op group of local backyard farmers/homesteaders/gardeners/.  Here is a photo-list of what is on its way.  To say that I am excited is a HUGE understatement!  I can’t wait until late February-early March to get these guys into soil…some as starts and some directly sown into the ground!
