“For gardeners, this is the season of lists and callow hopefulness; hundreds of thousands of bewitched readers are poring over their catalogues, making lists for their seed and plant orders, dreaming their dreams.” – Katharine White, Onward & Upward in the Garden (1979)
And so I too have been dreaming all winter. Ordering seeds and seedlings. Drawing garden plots and planning what to plant. Now I’m meeting with exuberant customers to hear what they want to grow and eat this coming season. Even though spring doesn’t officially arrive for another few days, there’s a wonderful, hopeful spring-quality to the air and the soil.
