Catalog envy.

Alright I’ve made my requests, and I’m trying to be patient, but dang it, I want to start planning my garden and I haven’t received any of my catalogs yet. I know, I know, I can just go online to a lot of the different places and search through much of their information that way, but I’m old fashioned. If I’m going to look through multiple different companies for things, I want to lay them out on the kitchen table, get a big picture type of view and mull over them all at once. Not just that though, and you wouldn’t expect this from a guy who spends his days developing interactive web applications, but I don’t like to buy over the internet. I do love to research my purchases before hand online, I just very rarely buy anything that way. I’ve done it before, and I’ve had good results I guess; I just don’t like it. This will be the first time, I think ever, that I will be ordering something from a catalog for that matter and that will come only after looking through them and deciding what we want and checking the local sellers to make sure that it is not available through them. I like to stand face to face with a person, ask them questions or for suggestions, and have that interaction. I am after all the consummate people person; but I digress. I guess I am lucky in that I have enough de-clutter and project wrap up work to keep me busy for a few weeks so I will be able to keep my mind occupied and not obsess on my lack of garden planning ammunition. I’ll have to live vicariously through Phelan at Homesteading Neophyte who not only already has seeds, but has them started in her indoor grow box. I’ll be lucky just to have my garage back in time to start any seeds indoors! I’ll show you why tomorrow.

hehe! I have been there before. Email me if you live in a state that allows seeds to be sent in the mail. I will be happy to send you a few.
