While it's hard to maintain a schedule and do proper planning when the Christmas decorations pop up in the stores before Halloween is over, a word about planning for the next season might be in order.

I was looking, today, for an item I had little hope of finding, and when one of the helpful employees tried - and couldn't find - the thing I wanted, I commented that I really expected it would be more commonly stocked during spring/summer gardening season and wasn't too surprised that they didn't have it in stock now.

His reply was:

"WE SHOULD BE GETTING THEM (my item) OUT IN A WEEK OR TWO. WE'VE ALREADY STARTED GETTING OUR SEEDS FOR SPRING PLANTING, AND WE'LL START PUTTING SOME OF THAT STUFF OUT SOON."

(Our high temp today was about 34F (1.1C) but we expect to be back in the low 20s (F) tomorrow. And January ain't here yet even.)

I need to start nagging LiK (the original black thumb) to get started picking what she wants to kill this spring.

Is anyone getting the seed catalogs already?
