The only time I don’t care when someone sells my name

By Penny Stine

Look what I've received in my mailbox:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I ordered from four different seed catalogs in 2012, so I hoped that I would be on their respective mailing lists for their 2013 seed catalogs. One of those seed companies must have shared or sold their mailing address list to other seed companies, since I got catalogs from three additional companies. Normally, that annoys me, but since it has resulted in more seed catalogs for me to daydream over during the cold, dark, cruel and extremely long month of January, I'm OK with it.

I wish I could resist them all and only order from one seed catalog to cut down on shipping, but sadly, I've found at least one item from every catalog that seems to be exclusive to that particular company. The Vermont Bean Seed Company has yellow doll watermelon, which I haven't been able to find anywhere, while Totally Tomatoes has the pink Caspian tomato (which Dixie Burmeister said was unbelievable) and Baker Creek has the poona kheera cucumber, which I'm hoping will become my new favorite cucumber and Park Seed also sells these great bio-domes that are great for starting seeds that like warmer temperatures to germinate. I bought one last year but would like to add another to my arsenal. 

Of course, it goes without saying that my 2013 garden will be the best one ever - they always are in January!
