Been gone from the blog for about 3 month since my last post.
Just living and doing, and living and not doing.
I've rediscovered the joys of just sitting and thinking, or sitting and not thinking about anything in particular, staring at passing clouds and light on tree branches like I did when I was a kid. I highly recommend it. Thoughts wander in wonderful directions when allowed the space to do so.
Last night I ordered FREE 2008 seed catalogs from the following sources.
Johnny's Select Seeds
Seeds of Change
Kitchen Garden Seeds
White Flower Farm
I'd fallen off their mailing lists because it has been so long since I ordered anything. Had them sent to my PO box so they wouldn't get mixed in with all the other junk mail and accidentally sent to the recycling bin.
Some companies sell organic seeds, others do not.
In anycase, I'm beginning to feel anticipation, looking forward to March planting of early vegetables this year.
Creative intentions are being readied for planting, too.
As always at this stage, they are numerous and unsprouted, like seeds held in the hand before the soil has begun to warm. Those that eventually reach the stage where they can put on leaves and set fruit will be something I'm willing to write about. For now I keep them cradled within my cupped palm and curled fingers.
