    [​IMG] I didn't really feel like planting. Now I get this magazine in the mail and I just want to plant EVERYTHING!!! It's not even February.
    I want to buy all these seeds, vegetables, fruit and flowers, and go into my small pasture and shake them in a can and just spread seeds all over. What fun!!!

    I am so ready to start planting... I just started to get my "plant" catalogs in the mail also.
    The ground has been covered with snow for a month, I just can't wait to be able to see grass again.
    I actually already started a few things inside

    I really do think they know just when to send those catalogs.

    I've reached a stage where I am immune from the lure of seed catalogs. It all looks so beautiful and easy on paper, but I remember the sweltering heat and humidity, the difficulty
    of keeping weeds and bugs out of the garden in this climate, not to mention the other garden predators. I certainly admire all of you who can do it!

    I still love the old Gurney's catalog. As a kid I used to pick out all the stuff I wanted and fill out the order form. That's usually as far as I'd get!

    We recently closed our family run farm supply business. For the last 20 years I've kept 2 - 20x50 greenhouses going and now I'm reduced to 1 - 12x20. I had really got burned out on the whole nursery thing, but I've had a break so now the bug has hit me. (Plus I've a new bf and he is a gardening freak. He'd have loved it when the big houses were at full production) Fortunately I have tons of seeds in the freezer and a lot of potting soil I can recycle, so I don't have to buy much in that regard. The problem I'm having is the downsizing. I'm not going to need the numbers I've had to produce for so many years.

    I transplanted tomatoes today, and the pepper's are coming along nicely. Sowed broccoli, cabbage, more tomatoes, eggplant, chamomile and parsley today.



    I hope my boyfriend stays this excited when the garden need hoeing[​IMG]

    CupidsDelite, when we last moved, I had to leave a 12 X 20 greenhouse behind! How I miss it. Happy planting.
