Today a little distraction from knitting............................................ This how my garden looked this morning. Still covered in snow and ash from the corn stove. Just resting until spring. Every January I start planning. The seed catalogs come in the mail and I begin to dream. I have these grandiose ideas. I want to plant every unique seed I can find. The more colorful and obscure the better. The seeds that know one has heard of. Shapes and tastes you can't get at the store. I am a sucker for creative descriptions and glossy pictures.
This is my first catalog of the year. I actually got it the day after Christmas. Tomato Growers is one of my favorites. They have a huge selection of tomatoes and peppers. I purchase from them almost every year. The catalog reads like a gourmet menu from a exclusive chef.
Last seasons tomatoes were dried with garlic and basil. They taste oh so good made into delicious Italian sauce.
Jars of basil tomato sauce were made.
These are seeds from last year that I didn't get to plant. I ran out of room!!! I have to try and plan better this year. I guess gardening is like all the other passions I have. Knitting, quilting, sewing, cooking. I want to do it all. The more the better. I tend to jump in and go all out. Nothing wrong with that right? P.S. I'm sure I'm not alone!!!!! P.S.S. Today the temp. is 48 degrees. Tomorrow night back to zero!!! UGGGGGGGGG!!!!! P.S.S.S. Yes I'm getting back to that scarf and I cast on for another calorimetry on my lunch hour!!!
