Dreaming of Spring


Baby, it’s cold outside! It’s 15 degrees as I write this! Now is the time to start planning for spring. Every winter I download this free rare seed catalog from http://www.rareseeds.com. They not only have seeds, but also a good variety of live plants. I have grown these Chinese Noodle Beans and they are so tender that you can sauté them and they have an asparagus-like flavor.

Or how about red Brussel sprouts?

Or this beautiful corn?

You get the point! Browse for yourself during these bleak days of winter? And did I mention that this catalog is FREE? (FYI – this is not a paid endorsement)
