Happy New Year! (almost)

Just a quick check in! Christmas was just wonderful this year! I got the best gift in the entire world, maybe the best gift in the entire universe this year! My Very, Very Dear Husband and my incredibly wonderful son got me a GREENHOUSE!!!!

I haven't gotten it put up yet, but it looks like this one:

So I am wishing for spring to hurry so I can get growing! I have already received a seed catalog from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds http://rareseeds.com. Check them out, they have all organic and heirloom seeds and the selection is incredible. Best of all their prices are fantastic and they don't burn you on shipping.

I also start haunting Lowes and Wal*Mart around this time of year to see if they have their seeds in. Every year I tell myself "buy in moderation, you do not need every single kind of flower seed they sell". But, every year I buy way too many anyway. I can't help it. The packages are so pretty and colorful. It's a sickness. I hope they will never find a cure!

Since I absolutely loathe winter, the thing that gets me through is dreaming of the wonderful weed-free garden that I will be planting in the spring. The one where every seed or plant I sow growns wonderfully and I get bushels of vegetables. Don't laugh, I said it was a dream! By August my garden generally looks like a jungle.

This is "teardown" week at my house. By January 1st I like to have all the Christmas decorations and trees taken down and put away. I feel like I get a "fresh" start if everything is cleaned and put away at the end of the year.

Wishing you a Very Happy 2010!

Congratulations! I have always thought of asking for one. I try to start things with seeds but don't seem to get the knack of it. Maybe 'cause I need a greenhouse!!!

Oh, you lucky girl! It's going to be a whole new world for you, isn't it? I love pouring over the seed catalogs too. It's a great way to get through the long cold winter! I can't wait to see lots of pictures of your greenhouse, and I hope you'll share the whole process of growing your flowers from seeds!

That is a fantastic gift. Are you looking at seed catalogs like me? I just found your blog and will be looking back at your earlier posts.

What a wonderful gift!!!!!!!!!!
I have alway wanted a greenhouse but had to settle for a cold frame. I won't complain though as I certainly made that thing work for me.
I'm glad you had a nice Christmas and pray you have a healthy, happy and prosperous new year.

Awesome!!! I've been wanting one for years. I'm so jealous! Did they get it from a catalog or a local shop?
Great seed company btw! They have festivals there too. Being I live in MO, I should check one of the festivals out!
