The Change Into Winter

And so, winter has begun. It amazes me how quickly this weather has come upon us with a vengeance and I am already sick of the cold. Today though, I embraced winter and went sliding with my husband and three boys. We had a wonderful time and how important it is to get out and play with your kids!

I am freeze baby but, there is one thing that keeps me going through the winter, next years garden. Many northerner’s can relate that it’s a great day when the seed catalog comes. I can’t tell you the great joy in imagining the summertime and a garden in these very frigid temps. This is just what happened to me this week, I received Baker Creek Heirloom seed’s catalog. Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds carries one of the largest selections of seeds from the 19th century. You can learn so much from a seed catalog. One thing (although there are many) that I love about there seeds is they are non-hybrid, non-GMO, non-treated and non-patented. They work with a network of small farmers, gardeners and seed growers to bring you the best selection of seeds available. I love working with and supporting these kinds of businesses. I am looking forward to hearing from you this winter on what do you do first in planning your garden for next year? How did your garden turn out last year and what will you do different this year? I never had the same garden twice and I think it’s the genius of gardening, “it’s like a box of chocolates, you’ll never know what your going to get.” I turn to this site for some really great gardening information at  Old World Garden Farms check them out for gardening ideas. It’s never to early to dream!

I hope you are able to enjoy your weather wherever you are and embrace it, with our fast past world how often do we miss the little things that can give us joy even when it’s so cold. So, today before the craziness of the Christmas and holiday season begins I hope you are able to unplug and embrace our beautiful world and find joy in the, simple.
