Howdy Camprn:

I Googled "garden catalogs" and found a site that listed 43 seed catalogs ready for the picking. Some were small "Pop and Mom" that were mostly heirlooms with a few listings and some were "biggies". Worth a visit.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

Howdy Folks:

Now if someone will send me an extra two or three hundred dollars I can buy the seeds that I have highlighted in the catalogs! Oh yeah and enough extra to build 10 or 15 new SFGs and the Mel's Mix to put them in and, and, and.... Smile

Come on Spring. God Bless, Ward and Mary.

Seed companies don't play fair with their catalogues.
Everything looks wonderful, and I don't have room for
it all. Shortening my want list is hard work...2011
is gonna be so good...sawing logs

I feel your pain. Since returning to the States last year, I needed, if you'll excuse the pun, "seed money", to start a brand new garden this coming year.

Too bad we hadn't "met" a couple of years ago, Kim...I would have taken all your garden stuff off your hands before you went back Stateside! Very Happy

Slewi,

I ordered some catalogs back in September/October and they are just now arriving.
Most Spring catalogs aren't mailed out until Dec or Jan.
How long ago did you order them? :?:

I got five in today's mail but didn't pick up the mail yesterday.
Its such fun to go thru them and make out tentative orders that I'll have to change a few times before I get the final one ready.

I had rec'd only two other ones in December.

Sorry LaFee, because the government was moving us, I was able to bring everything with me from Germany. While I was there I had to go with container gardening.
