Falling off to sleep dreaming of garden plans

Last night I was awake for a bit in the middle of the night, and as I drifted off to sleep I realized that I was planning out where the corn and tomatoes would go in the garden next year. I then realized how strange it was that I was thinking of the garden instead of planning out Christmas presents or events, and how it was strange to be thinking of next years garden when this past years garden is barely even covered with snow... But that's where I was at apparently!

I've received a few seed catalogs in the mail, and have leafed through them although I haven't yet started marking anything, or started a list of the seeds I will need for next years garden. I know we want to add Arugula. And I'd love to increase our garden space by putting up a new fence by Little M's playstructure, although that likely won't happen in the spring and will likely be a project for the following year. I am looking forward to starting the garden planning come the new year though, something fun and green to make the snowy cold days of January and February sail along faster.

Hope you all are enjoying the Christmas season and savoring the slowing down that winter brings.


  1. It's sometimes difficult to get those thoughts of gardening out of your head! It's the nature of the beast!
    Happy holidays to you and yours.

  2. Oh my goodness, i hear ya! I am reading a book about farming (well this is my second time reading it, becuase i love it so much) and it just makes me want to get outside and dig in. We are expanding our garden next year, and i want to add more space for basil and spinach. I would also like to grow some type of purple carrott variety!
