I bought my first Farmer's Almanac this year because I wanted help with dates to start seeds and outdoors planting.
There's so much more than just these facts, though. A writer includes a monthly article on his gardening adventures, and it's a delightful read. I tried to read some of it to Mr. Redo the other night but he just said, "Turn out the light and let's go to sleep." Can you imagine not wanting to hear a gardening story?
Oh well, I just caught the gardening bug last summer, I guess he'll catch up eventually.
Last weekend I was in The Christmas Tree Shoppe and found these. Another step towards this summer's garden: Beefsteak tomatoes, small and large zinnias (my faves), impatiens, and Elizabeth chose a pack of wildflowers. How totally exciting is that?!
Did you start thinking about gardening as soon as Christmas was over, like I did? Can. not. wait.
