Planning Your Vegetable Garden: The Seed Catalog Roundup

The holidays are fading and the quiet days are winter are settling in. If you're lucky enough to have a bit of land to devote to a garden, then it's time to start that classic winter distraction: planning your summer vegetable patch.

While the image of leafing through a stack of seed catalogs in front of a roaring winter's fire, cup of tea at elbow, is classic, the truth is most people do their seed shopping online now. Here's a list of a few favorites sites that specialize in culinary seeds sourced from all over the world. (Most of them still offer their catalogs in paper form, just in case your laptop gets too warm by the fire!)
