Two weeks before Christmas and I have no desire to look at Pottery Barn, Abercrombie and Fitch or Williams-Sonoma catalogs. I’m immune. I never actually fall prey to these, anyway, but then again, I don’t do Xmas. Jesus ain’t getting the Dream Act this year, whatever. My point? Have your moment, Santa; I just think, “It’s winter.” New Year's is coming and I DO think about the coming planting season.

We will be in the “heat” of spring in just over two months. The days will be lengthening as we pass the December 21st Solstice; you hippie freaks will undoubtedly be worshiping the Mother, and I’ll be looking at new varieties of available seed to put in her. Here are some of my fave vendors whose catalogs that I have dog-eared and love to support.
