Are you in the mood for a good old-fashioned romance?
If you're looking for a novel without ripped bodices, graphic bedroom scenes,
or other distractions from a simple love story, you've come to the right place.

I'm longing for spring.

Yes really. Right now -- nearly mid-March -- the snow is still two feet thick on the ground and the garden is calling me by name.

Gardening companies are clever at tapping into that urge. It's no accident catalogs start arriving in mailboxes in January, when the weather is bleakest. All it takes is a brief thumb-through of the beautifully-illustrated perfect fruits and vegetables, and wham. It hits. The urge.

The best way to answer spring's siren call is to start seeds indoors. Most things can be directly planted in the garden, but I'll get tomatoes and cayenne peppers and broccoli started.

So for the time being, my gardening itch is scratched. Let's see what grows.

Stay warm, everyone!
