Oh January, you do this to me every year!

Poor yourself a cup of coffee, pull up a chair and grab your latest seed catalog. I am not sure about you, but right after Christmas, my mind starts thinking about warmer weather, spring time flowers and my garden beds. We have had unusually warm weather this week, with it being in the mid 60's today and again tomorrow and it makes me want to run out to the garden and start planting.

I am no sure why, but in January, gardening gets under my skin. Several years ago, my husband and I were talking right after Christmas and he looked at me and asked what we should plant this year. I love him for caring...and knowing that when January rolls around, I have already started planning and dreaming.

One day, our dream is to have enough land to plant an orchard, a small vineyard and have a large garden and even a few animals. I would like chickens and maybe a sheep or two. But for now, we live in the suburbs where I like to pretend I am on a farm with my little garden beds in the back yard.

Have you started planning your spring garden? So far, I know am planting tomatoes and corn, and will add to my herbs in the front.

Here are my favorite NON-GMO seed catalogs and websites to help you with gardening: I have used Baker Seeds in the past with amazing results!

Genesis 1:12
The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and
trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that
it was good.
