The new season

Posted 1/5/2011 12:00am by Andy Watson.

Every winter, the new season's seed catalogs arrive. Their brightly colored photos of tomatoes, eggplants, zucchini and pretty much every vegetable you can think of is staring back at me. It feels kinda like Christmas. The possibilities are endless but unfortunately the space on the farm is not. The catalogs do not change much from year to year but it is still like opening a brand new magazine and taking a look at what there is available.  The hardest part is choosing tomato varieties.  This is the one vegetable that I can't even count the different varieties.  There are hundreds.  I reorder varieties that I have been growing for years that will always be my favorites.  I order a few that maybe were grown the season before and I want to give them another chance, since every season is different.  I also order a 1/2 dozen or so new ones that might be new on the market, or might just catch my eye.  It is the only vegetable that I can spend hours milling through two or three catalogs just trying to make a list. There really is nothing better than sitting with a cup of coffee, in the morning, paging through a crisp new catalog, relaxing, and taking it all in.  Now I just have to do it while bouncing my 4 month old daughter Ruby on my knee and listening to my 4 year old son Wade singing Christmas songs in the playroom. Life is great.
