We Love You Gurney's

The first glimmering pinpoint of Spring light has now shone at the end of the Winter cave at the VanOort house. ;-) The Gurney's catalog has arrived. Now weeks will be spent with diagrams of the garden beds, lists of potential candidates, of the flora variety, for each special spot and hours and hours pouring over the pages of this very special piece of printed material. The regulars always make the cut....Early Girl tomatoes, Miss Pickler cucumbers and the like...then there are always the wild cards, new varieties of sunflowers, decorative kale, jalapenos, etc. Spring, oh dear Spring, we are anxiously counting down the days until as my Grandma Eula says "the earth is warm enough to walk in your barefeet in the garden....then it's time to plant." My barefeet in the garden...that sounds so nice right now.

I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
