Burpee Came Yesterday

I received my Burpee Catalog yesterday, and I don't know why it is so late.  I usually get a huge influx of catalogs in January, so this is very late to be getting a seed catalog.  Now, I really don't know what to do, too late to start many of the seeds, but they do offer small plants, but not the ones I want!  How frustrating this is just when I am ready to get started on my vegetable garden.

I think I will order the tomato plants called Brandy Boy (a cross between Brandywine and one of the Boy tomatoes) higher yields than the heirloom "Brandywine." and a pepper called Mariachi (an All America Winner) just a hint of heat!

I am just continuing to ignore the snow, maybe I will go shopping for fertilizer today.

**Ordered my plants from Burpee (got free Espoma Fertilizer), bought my onion sets from Home Depot and some garlic sets to keep the rabbits away

Fellow teacher here Gatsby! What a wonderful garden you had. I have tried to grow vegetables in NC where I live but my lot is too shady!

I have had a very shady lot also in a previous house. My tomato plants grew to eight feet tall with few tomatoes.

You won't believe this, but I was a Kindergarten teacher for thirty-five years in the public school system. My best friend for all of those years a pe teacher just moved to Aiken, South Carolina. Go figure!
