When I was very young Grandma and Grandpa moved to the country. I do not recall if Grandma was a catalog shopper before she moved there, but I know once she was in the country she had tons of catalogs always. One of my favorites was the Burpee catalog. They have plants and seeds for growing just about anything.
I would go visit Grandma and she and I would sit on the couch and look through the Burpee catalog. She gave me a small notepad to write down the things I liked best as we browsed. My favorites were always Marigolds. Then she would have them shipped to my own house so I could plant them. I miss sitting on the couch with Grandma looking through the catalog.
Gardening is not really something I am good at, but I do like planning. Luckily, Hubby likes to grow veggies so I can help plan and he does the gardening part with just my occasional help. This year we are going to try to start some seeds inside since it is cheaper than buying plants to start. This is where you come in! I want you to share your best planting, seeding, growing, etc. type tips with me and Hubby. I will draw a winner who will win a $50 Burpee Gift Card even!
