We had a bit of a thaw this week.
And as soon I smelled that wet earth – something snapped in me.
I craved zucchini.
And fresh tomatoes.
And corn on the cob slathered with butter.
So I brewed a cup of tea, dug out my favorite Baker Creek Seed catalog and started dreaming beautiful garden dreams.
Oh the possibilities!
Do I stick with the tried and true – or venture out into new varieties?
How about purple cauliflower?
Or black tomatoes?
Or speckled lettuce?
Most definitely I need tam jalapenos. But I’ll skip the ghost peppers this year.
I wonder how hot Thai chilies are?
Or a chocolate habanero?
Oh look – there’s an alligator squash!
And the lettuces! I’ll take one of each please.
I have to find the Moon and Stars watermelon – Jan had some last summer and said it was the sweetest and best melon he has ever eaten.
This list is getting really long!
I wonder how much I’m spending?
Is my garden space big enough for all this?
Oh wait – I’ve totally missed the entire section on herbs!
And I forgot the flower seeds!
I’m gonna need another pot of tea.

Skip the purple beans. We tried those one year and they did not produce very well. Otherwise, dream-on! Mom
Boy do I understand!
