The first step in getting a garden ready for a new season is ordering supplies. I try to save seeds where possible from previous year's plants, and I have a pretty good collection of tools and such, but there are always new seed varieties to try and gardening toys to tempt. So when the Peaceful Valley Farm catalog arrives in those dark days of winter, it kicks off a few weeks of dreaming that, with good planning, culminate with just one e-commerce transaction. By now, my seeds have arrived, and some are already going in the ground.
This does not mean you're too late if you have no idea what I'm talking about. But don't order a catalog and wait for it to arrive - just check out their website. There are seeds you can try this spring that are still available. And there are other gardening goodies, too. More
