Hurry Up and Wait!

Herban Gardening / Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

cardinal in the snow

Gardening catalogs began arriving before the holidays this Winter, and I jumped right on them! Didn’t want any of my first choices to be sold out when I ordered!

(I’m swooning over the “Early Blood Turnip” beets, “Hakurei” turnips, “Listada de Gandia” eggplants, and “Jenny Lind” muskmelons that I’m trying for the first time, and hoping to grow more calendula, chamomile, lavender, and holy basil than ever before)

I’ve been rushing to devour all the organic gardening books I could get my hands on to prepare for our “farm expansion” in the Spring, taking notes and stockpiling supplies like mad.

Now it’s January 11. All my seeds have arrived. Planting plans have been sketched out on paper to make sure I’m keeping good crop rotation, and starts scheduled on the calendar.

Nothing left to do now but wait for gardening season to begin again!

  1. Oh my! You’re way ahead of me. I just pulled my gardening journals out today to try to decide what seeds to order. How are you so well organized? ;)

    Happy seed starting for the coming year and may you get enough sun and rain for all your plants to be happy. That’s my New Year’s wish to you!
