Happy (belated) New Year!

Sorry for the long hiatus folks. There is no real reason except that December is December, there is a complete lack of interesting gardening things to write about, and I spent all my free time drooling over plant and seed catalogs. I also got a new guitar for my 40th birthday.  Yes 40, and I was having a bit of a what am I doing with my life and where is it going moment.  Crisis averted, and I'm now refocused on what needs to get done outside, like pruning.  You didn't know you are supposed to prune in the winter? Oh my bloggy friends... still so much to learn...

Things you need to know about my life right now:
#1 - My vegetable seed order is already done (new personal record).
#2 - The lack of snow this winter (except for today) means an early spring garden, as early as mid-march is potentially possible.
#3 - The interest in starting home vegetable gardens has not fallen out of fashion this year thank goodness, and I've had an unprecedented number of phone calls, emails, etc. from people ready to take the plunge this year.
#4 I've started working on drawings for the redesign of my front beds.  Started that is, and long from finished.  I think I'm going to spend about a million dollars in new plants.  Yes, I know I have a problem.
