I’m making my list and checking it twice.
At 4:00 in the morning.
In my jammies.
In the warmth of my house.
Outside, the wind is howling and the temperatures are dropping,
and I’m shopping for seeds for next year’s garden.
Even after all those seeds I saved throughout the summer, I’m still a sucker for a good seed sale.
Seed Savers Exchange is one of my favorite seed companies. This company is dedicated to preserving heirloom and open pollinated seeds. At this time, they are having a 50% off sale on 108 varieties of vegetable and flower seeds.
One item on sale is the Lina Sisco Bird Egg Bean. Dating back to the late 1880’s, this bean is used as dry bean. It is one of those vegetables you can plant in the spring and leave alone until the pods dry. After I shell them, I set aside some for supper and then freeze the rest. So easy. I’ve never had any bug or disease problems with this variety and I have grown them (and saved the seeds) for years.
I know it’s a busy time of year, but, if you have a chance, check out their site and be inspired for next year.
Isn’t it easy to plan the best garden in the winter?
