Today in Chicago, it’s 9 degrees outside. And nothing helps you get through these cold months like thinking about your 2011 garden! Seed catalogs are easy to order online, usually free, and a great way to help visualize. My favorites this year are Select Seeds (they specialize in heirlooms), Seeds of Change (organic seeds with great great guidelines and instructions provided in the catalog), and Seed Savers Exchange (a non-profit whose mission is to pass on rare seeds and keep the diversity in gardening alive). Remember not to get too excited. One seed makes one plant. It’s easy to be overwhelmed and want one of everything. Gather a few friends and decide together what seeds to purchase. Share the wealth!
