One day last week, Mom came back from the mailbox with a big smile on her face. “Look, Martok,” she said. “This is my first heirloom-vegetable gardening catalog for next year!”
I was elated when I opened the mailbox the other day to find the spring catalog for High Country Gardens, a company in Santa Fe, N.M., that specializes in “Beautiful Plants for the Waterwise Garden.”
The seed catalogs have really started rolling in, now, and it’s so exciting. I was talking with some fellow gardeners yesterday about their favorite catalogs and about some of the new varieties they are looking forward to trying this year.
