Pornography for Gardeners

In the dead of winter when the seed catalogs begin to arrive; my faith that spring will come is renewed. I often get a twinkle in my eye and tell people my porn magazines have begun to arrive! After the alarm has subsided from their faces I let them know I am talking about seed catalogs. Let me tell you, pouring over the content of at least half a dozen of these gems daily is a much needed crutch for the long days of winter! Circling, crossing out, mapping, calculating, and comparing can fill many obsessive hours!
So, run don't walk to the mailbox every day and cuddle up with your catalogs nightly. After all you will need to place your order in about 2-3 weeks especially if you plan an early start for things like cabbage or brussel sprouts!

Maybe this year I will organize my scraps in some creative way. Or not.

Maybe I will finally find a way to keep all these miscellaneous ribbons and notions in their place.

Maybe I will just learn to be neater.

Naw. I think I would rather teach myself how to use this first:

What do you resolve to do or not to do this year?
