Seed catalogs…a good rainy day read

Fredericksburg Farms

Seed Catalogs

We love our big Fredericksburg Farms garden each year and start planning what to plant in January. Seed companies send out their annual catalogs after the first of the year and although most companies have their offerings online now, many still send a physical catalog in the mail. Those are the ones I look forward to perusing on a rainy day with a cup of hot tea, reading the descriptions for the juiciest tomatoes for canning, the best varieties of bell peppers, onions, squash, okra, lettuces, spinach and Swiss chard. Our offerings don’t often look like the pictures in the catalog, with our hot dry summers and invasions of various bugs; but we get a healthy harvest with plenty to share. I can’t wait for that first taste of a garden grown tomato.

    A good blog always comes up with new and exciting information and while reading I felt that this blog has all those qualities that qualify a blog to be one.
