It is that time of year again. Once the Christmas decorations come down, the garden catalogs begin to show up.

This weekend was a beautiful sunny 70 degrees. I was able to walk around the back yard and the gardens for the first time since my surgery. While there is lots of clean up to do, the promise of a lush garden always brings a smile. It is supposed to rain this week, so I will be pouring over the new catalogs to pick out my spring tomatoes, melons, peppers, etc. We have to make decisions quickly here in order to get our seedlings ready. Such fun!
