We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Snow and Seed Catalogues
We are supposed to get more snow on Sunday and then a cold wave should start to come through. That is a perfect chance to look through all the seed catalogues. Baker Creek and Territorial Seed are in reach as I blog. However, at the end on the 2013 season, I purchased many packs of seeds at 90% of. Zinnias, carrots, basil, lettuce, radish, and others. So I may not need to purchase much. With that said, I would love to try something new in the vegetable department. Any ideas. Last year my new adventure was garlic and it was a great crop. What new seed adventure should I try in 2014?
Last year, when I ordered seeds from Baker Creek over the phone, I started up a chat with the rep from the company and he sent me their book on heirloom vegetables free of charge because I was so interested in gardening. That is the advantages of placing an order by phone: real conversations can be so much more fun and interesting versus ordering over the Internet.
