……mine Postman bringeth.

I only talk like this in the winter or during catalog season.

My Mother and I used to have a friendly contest to see who was lucky enough to get the first seed catalog in the mail.   I seem to have won every single year.  I guess that could have been because I sent off for as many as I could on those little cards where you circle all your choices.   Shhhhhhh.   She doesn’t need to know this.

When the seed catalogs arrive, I breath a sigh of relief.  Spring will come.  It has to.  I have orders to send off.


And with those orders comes the hope of a new year.  A glorious year!  It will be THE year!  A garden to do anyone proud.  Pristine rows of fresh grown, wholesome vegetables.  Not a weed will be allowed…….

Do not judge me!


Yep.  This will be my year………….for sure.

    Rabbit food… it’s the way it always is around here, despite my five foot high fence with a chicken wire reinforced base. We have very aggressive rabbits.

      Yes, I’ve heard the rabbits there are crossing with Wolves? 😊. Fortunately for us, our dog has a personal vendetta against all bunny rabbits. Unfortunately for us, she is as big as a horse and completely destroys the very plantings that she is supposed to protect while chasing said bunnies.

    I start out good and then the weeds take over…finally I started planting in containers and raised beds. I like it so much more!

      I went to raised beds also. I think my plants do better in our clay soil with raised beds. Unfortunately, I can’t mow them when the weeds get away from me! Lol! Worst vegetable gardener right here!

    The hope of spring does get us through the winter! I think I’m going to have to start planning a garden, too!
