Yea, I'm going to get started here pretty quick, usually first or so of Feb.  I'm behind on getting seeds ordered this year, if I do a garden.

I get "farmer's fever" around this time each year. Simply itching to get something growing even although I know there's no point in starting seeds here until at least the end of March.  Dreaming my way through seed catalogues and planning the garden helps. Now is when I sort through the garden box, read over my notes I made last year on the planting dates, weather, varieties, what I planted next to each other, etc. and how things yielded. Just busy work, I know, but it helps calm the fever.

This time of year it's nice to have something to keep the mind occupied! I daydream of 90F+ days!

We got a Johnny's seed catalog just before Christmas.  I'm waiting for others to show up.  Nothing like sitting next to the wood stove in cold weather and drooling over all the summer photos in the catalogs!

 

We want to try some new plants this year.  Two which come to mind are collard greens and Cilantro. 

 

One of the seed companies we often buy from is "Territorial Seed" in Oregon.  They have some varieties that work better in the cooler parts of the PNW.  However, I do think that usually the seed companies buy seed from the same place and just package it. 

 

As a rule, we are trying to move away from hybrids and save our own seed. 

 

Regards,

 

Doug

Doug my wife is into heirloom seeds. She has several bean seeds from plants that her grandma used over 80 years ago not to mention cuttings from plants like roses & lily's. That's a nice thing to do so much of the good ole stuff is gone now.

Here's a picture of the catalog of that Heirloom seed company "Baker Creek" got it shortly after I posted the 1st time back in December, they look to be out of Missouri and I seen that they have the cilantro and collard greens in there.

Has anyone else noticed that some of the seed companies are discontinuing putting out paper catalogs and have gone to "digital" catalogs? I understand the reasoning why, but it just ain't the same curling up with a electronic device as it is a paper catalog like Doug said..... Drooling over summer pictures.

We get the Baker Creek catalog as well. My wife ordered some of their "Cherokee Trail of Tears" poll beans last year. They did well & very tasty. You have to pick them young because they get dark & go to seed fast. We let some go to seed so we could try them again this year.

I have tried those as well, but the season's not long enough for them here.  Saving seeds from the old heritage type plants is a good idea and I have a fair collection of different seeds.  The hybrid varieties can be fun as well, but they won't breed true.  Frustrating when I find a nice hybrid carrot that I'd like to keep and it simply doesn't produce well from the saved seed. Since carrots are biennials,.it's a three year process saving seed and getting a new crop from them.
