It begins all over again...

Monday I posted my final harvest of the season and a few shots of a put to bed plot. In that post a ready asked if I was already planning for the spring. Half jokingly I replied that I had been planning for next year as soon as I had started working this year. The truth is that I learned a tremendous amount this year and will definitely put it to use next year!
While my post was loading on Monday my mailman left a surprise that already points to next years growing season:
Despite the grainy cellphone pic it's clear that the first 2 seed catalogs for 2011 have arrived with High Mowing Organic Seeds and Pinetree Garden Seeds taking honors for earliest arrivals. I am mostly set with seeds but it never hurts to look through the catalogs and daydream of more space and more veggies!

You are the second person that said they have gotten the Pinetree catalog. I think they are snubbing me this year. I so want to look through mine.

This post made me laugh just because I am right there with you. I received my Pinetree catalog yesterday and spent the evening looking through and daydreaming about next season.

Daphne - I've only looked through High Mowing so far. With the abundance of seed I was sent I don't really need them, but I'd like to add a little variety!

GrafixMuse - I don't think the daydreams ever really end!

I am loving the seed catalogs! I don't receive the High Mowing catalogs, I might have to look into them as you can never have enough seed catalogs IMO.

Your garden looks pretty successful this year, the leeks are beautiful! I always think I've planted enough leeks, but in fact, don't think I could ever grow enough, they are so delicious.
