Dreams of the Spring Garden

A few weeks ago, I had my grandkids look at a few seed catalogs I get every year. One got the Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog and the other got the West Coast Seeds catalog. I asked each to pick out five veggies they would like to grow this year. As expected, my granddaughter gravitated to the beets and peas section of the catalog, while my grandson went straight for the berries! I love that they each have their favorites (don't we all?) and that part of building the anticipation of gardening in the spring is this "dream" stage.  I mean, what else can you do when it is snowing and 30 degrees outside in January?

Have you had a chance to go to the Tools and Resources page of the website yet?  Check out information that will help you, especially if you are a beginning gardener. Today, I just posted a new resource, a quick 4-5 minute video on When to Plant Seeds.  Head on over to find your growing zone, frost dates, and links to growing guides, as well as calendars and other how-to videos in a beginning gardener series.
