    I haven't seen any catalogs yet, but I rarely order anything from a catalog. It's hard to find varieties that do well in the heat down here.

    I got one a few weeks ago.....one of the herb seed companies, can't remember which. Maybe I'll be able to find it when it's time to order, in a couple of months, lol.

    Ohhhhhhhh now I'll be sprinting to the mailbox every day until it comes. I'm waiting for both backyard and commercial catalogs. Fedco comes out next month.

    I need to order a couple of replacements for things that didn't germ well. I planted cool weather crops in the hoop while it was still too warm for them to germinate well.

    I got one from Thompson & Morgan seeds a couple of weeks ago. I put it aside for those cold winter days/nights where thumbing through all of those catalogs and planning is one of my favorite winter things! :)

    I HOPE none come until after I get the Christmas presents finished! If they come sooner, I'll have a BIG problem! :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the link. I now have a lengthy order to send in and it isn't even Thanksgiving!

    Oh wow... I LOVE seed catalogs! :dance:
    I never order from them,either, but they are great for planning what I am going to plant... this year was my first year w/out a garden, the poultry ATE everything! Gotta figure out how to remedy that and still allow them to free range... :shrug:

    And I was just complaining this afternoon that I don't have any catalogues to browse yet. As long as they don't come so early that you want to rework your entire garden, sooner gives me more time to change my mind. And there are always such cool new varieties every year!
