The major seed catalogs have all arrived….I am not sure I am quite ready for this.  Somehow, December’s warm weather has made me even more wary of winter.  It isn’t that I don’t want spring, it is that I am still waiting for the shoe to drop and winter to commence. Besides, I might still be able to sneak a leek or some parsley out of the garden from Last summer, which makes contemplating next summer peculiar. Strangely, pulling something from the freezer (or the multitude of squash downstairs) does not elicit the same feeling that last year’s garden is still active.

The mind is an odd and wonderful place!
