Sarah of Waiting for Spring (catchy title, no?) has not only picked out her seeds, but placed her order with Vesey’s as well.

In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

Woohoo and Happy New Year!
I am so pleased you added a comment to my gardening blog. Pleased because it is always good to get one (I am sure you can appreciate that) but also because it had become a little “unkept” and needed some attention. Although we are in the middle of winter, and little is happening in the garden, there is a lot happening in our plans for this year and I will be adding these over the next few weeks.

Wyn.
