There are two seasonal diversions that can ease the bite of any winter.
One is the January thaw.
The other is the seed catalogs.
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.
