All is Calm, All is Bright
Signing off now for an end-of-year break, I wish my readers a pleasant and joyful holiday season. Christmas sets my focus on family and friends, and time for quiet reflection on the year gone past. I thank all of you who've stopped by this year to read about my garden, share your advice, and just plain cheer me on at times. I appreciate your comments, always.
Join me back here in January for more adventures in my garden. Already my mind is stirring with ideas. We're planning to put in three new raised beds, a rain barrel, and some type of dog- and rabbit-prevention fence. Oh, and we're already salivating at the thought of having more fresh herbs just steps from the door.
Yesterday I received the new catalog from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. If you enjoy growing heirloom vegetables, don't miss this catalog. (And if you've never grown a vegetable of any sort in you life, why not resolve to try in 2008?) With twelve pages of tomatoes alone, including varieties called Ferris Wheel, Pink Accordion, Break O' Day, and Thai Red Turtle Egg, I guarantee something in this catalog will pique your curiosity. Have you ever seen a white tomato? Baker Creek offers five varieties of white, plus pink, orange, green, and striped tomatoes. You'll think you slipped into the pages of a Dr. Seuss book. Head over to Baker Creek to order a catalog. Then dream, dream, dream your garden wishes for 2008!
