Seed Catalogue Addiction (a very serious thing)

IMG_1501

Seed catalogues in the mail

they come now every day.

I sit with a pot of tea,

four more months till May!

 

I pore over every page

and circle everything.

I make lists of what I need,

I cannot wait till Spring!

 

Pretty purple cauliflower

I must have some of them.

Yellow, speckled melons,

oh my, what a gem!

 

Warty, orange pumpkins,

a delight for the eye.

Giant purple peppers,

those I have to try!

 

I’m up to eight hundred dollars,

a problem, that’s for sure.

I need every type of lettuce,

an addiction I cannot cure.

 

Ten foot high colored corn,

tiny dried beans with blue spots,

Raspberry bushes that bloom all year,

or mini-cabbages, I need lots!

 

I’m out of room, I think, to farm.

Now this certainly can be hard.

I could start a farm on the roof,

or in my neighbor’s yard!

 

I have a list, I’ll make it do.

I have a lot to grow this year.

Early varieties, tried and true,

Oh look, another catalogue is here!

  1. Looking at seed catalogues with my mom was one of my favorite childhood memories. We would always get the Jung Seed Co catalogue. Now I live in a city with three stores!
