I am counting the moments until Spring arrives again. There was once a time when I dreaded the prospect of a hot and humid July and August...now I look forward to those sultry months for the garden bounty that they bring. The mountains of tomatoes in every color shape and size imaginable...the crisp, cool cucumbers, the herbs of every flavor, crunchy-sweet or spicy-hot peppers in rainbow hues...oh ...garlic scapes curling toward the sun...I could go on and on.
Okay...I still dread the sticky-hot nights and the buzzy , bite-y mosquitoes....
But you know the veggies are divine.
For now I am in a garden limbo, pouring over my seeds and seed catalogs, suspended in a frozen world....Waiting.
