Seed Catalogs & Garden Planning

Seed catalogs are coming in the mail.  They are so fun to explore and are a great source of information and enjoyment – especially when I can’t be out working in the garden.  I can be planning my garden and yard for spring – deciding what to grow and where to grow everything.  If you haven’t gardened much in the past it is good to start with a few things – what do you enjoy eating or using the most.  Do you love tomatoes and basil?  Then those could be some great things to start with.Some of my favorite books for information whether you are experienced or a beginner:
All New Square Foot Gardening: Grow More in Less Space!
Smithsonian Handbooks: Herbs (Smithsonian Handbooks)
The Pleasure of Herbs: A Month-by-Month Guide to Growing, Using, and Enjoying Herbs
Growing & Using Herbs Successfully (Garden Way Book)

My favorite magazines include:
Herb Companion
Organic Gardening

One of my favorite sources for herb plants and seeds:
Richters

Open-pollinated and heirloom seed sources
