I spent the weekend celebrating my birthday. It wasn’t a “special” birthday and the intention was for it to be very low-key, but things kept popping up, so I just kept eating and drinking and celebrating with friends and family. That was fantastic, but it pushed off me organizing my seed order for another weekend. And I have to say, I’m starting to get nervous about it.
I have, however, been perusing catalogs and websites and finding so many interesting things to grow. No one can ever say that growing a garden is boring after seeing the amazing selection of seeds available these days. I never can decide whether to go to the tried-and-true varieties or something a little more oddball.
Here are some of the interesting seeds that I’ve run across (some affiliate links used).

What sorts of varieties do you favor? Old standards or something new? Have you ordered seeds yet? If so, please tell me about it so I can live vicariously through you!
