January truly is the start of the new year for the Home Farm. Although it is cold, gray, and lifeless outside, it’s now time to start envisioning the next season. My absolute favorite part of this process is the chance to browse through the seed catalogues that start arriving in the mail by mid-December. Although I happily order my seed online through the seed companies’ websites, I can never pass up the chance to peruse the tangible magazines themselves. This helps me find some great new crops and varieties and the pictures help fuel my imagination and make the season-to-come that much more real!
