I really enjoy putting together visual guides, tools that can be tucked into your favorite garden reference book and help to remind you when to start your seeds. Being an avid zone-pusher, my guides are especially salient for like-minded souls, though they work well for everyone.
A Word about Seed Companies
There are as many seed companies as there are condiment options in the grocery aisle, and similarly, seed companies become a deeply personal choice. We identify with them. They sustain us. They become us as they literally nourish us. I am no exception, falling into committed relationships with my seed sources.
That being said, I have grown to love some companies more than others, while not necessarily loving others less. If this notion resonates with you, well, that brings a smile to my face. There is always room in my budget to support new, small, independent seed companies.
