Christmas in the Mail....

I got the bestest present...my Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog...today!  Happy Christmas to me!  Been thumbing through, picking out new additions to the seed pile.  Not knowing exactly where I'll be come planting time (GA, TX or TX...oh, and there is always the possibility of Germany still) does put a small damper on my picking and choosing.

I adore Baker Creek for many reasons...one being they are here, in MO.  Another being that there is a family, a real live family behind it all. A third being that these seeds are real, not messed with hybrids that really produce.  Can't beat that, now can you?

So my list is made, the funds are being allocated and I ponder the joys of a garden of my own...if we get moved in time.  I've scrubbed my big pots and have them ready for sproutlets because I know I'll be transporting the ones that need early planting.  It's actually a bit of an interesting dilemma at the moment...what to start and when...because of the current lack of knowledge concerning our summer/fall location.  I'm actually rooting for GA...hoping to snag one of the renovated historicals on-post...a yard...a real live yard...sigh.  I may not have an in-ground garden this year, but by golly...I got pots and they travel!

Aye, Mabe...do believe you are right...though I'm feeling that it may show up a bit later in the year...say Aug. or Sept. though I could be very wrong. Have to let the sheeple settle back into a state of purchase induced bliss after tax season before the big moves and falls are made ya know....broke folks bend easier.

All the same, the seed is on the way...the pantry is full up and I now know for a fact that the Blazer can totally take it off-road (love that 4WD shift on the fly).
