Spring must be getting closer because I’m getting lots of seed catalogs. I’ve already gotten some of my favorites such as Pinetree Garden Seeds, Totally Tomatoes, and today, my favorite of favorites, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds. What a totally GORGEOUS catalog! Beautiful format and wonderful photos of so many great varieties! I had to sit down and thumb through it right away. I’ve already found things I MUST order. I was disappointed this year though that they’ve discontinued Hopi Pale Grey squash seeds. Bummer. They were the last commercial source of this super squash that I know of in the country. That’s a huge loss.
Meanwhile, while I went to town for dog food, Will finished the stone work on our rock wall behind the living room stove. I think it looks absolutely stunning. And after a few days, Will is going to pull off the 2×4 framework/form and will be putting on the rustic wooden shelves. Then after a month or so of curing, we’ll coat it with sealer to bring out the color of the rocks, making them seem wet. I can hardly wait. — Jackie
