We've been having many quiet days of late looking over seed catalogs and discussing what we should grow this coming season. A few new items on our list that we plan to try out---scallions, escarole, a new dark purple carrot, padron peppers, crocosmia, a couple new asian greens for our CSA, a new red cherry tomato, romanesque cauliflower, and some new kinds of sweet corn. I'm sure there is more on that list, but that is what comes to mind. We seem to have trouble with our summer variety. This past season our winter squash all bit the dust due to the squash vine borer, which wiped out several weeks worth of winter squash for our CSA.
We're also in the process of writing thank you notes for our Christmas gifts. Stuart gifted me with some lovely cards from Han Notes for our first year anniversary. I fell in love with the art they use on their cards when I was out in Portland in September. Wonder what an original piece costs.
