by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Aside from the garden of Eden,
man’s great temptation took place
when he first received his seed catalog.
Today’s Unearthed Words are all about seed catalogs.
If you are a new gardener, welcome to the joy of curling up on the couch with a cup of coffee and a notebook, and a seed catalog. If you’re a veteran gardener, you got this down. In either case, you’ll enjoy these verses and poems on a gardener’s favorite Winter activity: going through seed catalogs.
