Can't Put the Pen Down…

Ordering a Seed Catalog

It’s an act of faith, really,
ordering a seed catalog in January,
at least it is when you live in the north,
rooted deeply in a cherished belief
that this might be the year the spinach doesn’t bolt
when it’s 3 inches tall.
It’s rather like buying a lottery ticket,
Most of the enjoyment lies
in visions of potential,
in dreams of green.

  1. We can dream and sit in the house in the cold and make little garden maps and diagrams……and wait!

  2. Too true. January’s garden and those catalogues – online or otherwise – prove irresistible to me even after too many years to count : )
