Gardening Goals

While visions of vegetables, herbs, & flowers dance in their heads …

This is the time of year when everyone starts talking about New Year’s Resolutions and Goals but, for gardeners, it’s SEED CATALOG TIME!

Yes, I shouted that, and if you are a gardener, you understand perfectly; perusing seed catalogs and dreaming of what you’ll plant and where, occupies and fortifies us during the long, cold days of winter.

I will confess that living in zone 8b (Savannah, Ga) I don’t see as many of those dark days and can pretty much plant year-round, BUT I lived in NE Ohio so I know all about winter that never ends.

I have found that garden planning down along the coast actually is a hurried affair because my planting times are so short. I no sooner get the Fall Garden planted than I need to get ready for Spring.

I am a planner in all things. My books are all plotted in various notebooks and computer files … same with my garden. I have lots of jotted down notes in margins of catalogs and on scraps of paper but, when it comes time to make a decision and order, I use planner pages that I created years ago.

Are you a gardener? What do you grow? Which companies do you like to order from?

My favorite is Pinetree Garden Seeds. I love their catalog and the varieties from around the world. They also sell in small amounts, for not much money.

I also like Renee’s Garden Seeds, great recipes and heirloom flowers, though they can be a bit pricey.
