I Dream of A Vegetable Garden
Since we sold our house last Summer and plan to buy another in a year or so, I've been trying to keep up with the houses on the market so it'll be easier to spot a good deal. There are a few things I really, really want. One of which is a big yarn that I can grow my own vegetables. Such as, cucumbers, artichokes, peppers, zucchini and of course, tomatoes. I've been thinking about it a lot lately and even borrowed a book from the library on vegetable gardening. This is a really good book that I'll probably buy once I have the means to have a garden. I've already leaned that you can set a beer trap to catch slugs and snails. My mom plans to test it out. Also, my co-worker has Sirius radio on the computer I use to do my work and today I listened to Martha Stewart radio all day. There was a segment on planting vegetable gardens and they talked quite a bit about seed catalogs. This piqued my interest. I love catalogs! How fun would that be to browse all the different types of seeds and to learn about different varieties! I found this link to a catalog list on the Martha Stewart website. I requested seed catalogs from Seed Savers, Kitazawa Seed Company and Johnny's Select Seeds. I can hardly wait til they get here!
