I am sitting in front of the fireplace watching the snow fall, flipping through gardening catalogs. Trying to decide if I want red or purple impatiens this year, contemplating if the convenience of seed starting kits is worth the cost, should I replace the compost tumbler before adding another rain barrel, and thinking maybe I should order heating cables for the cold frame. Thinking about all those gardening accessories I have purchased over the years that were indeed wasted money. I am trying to let reason win over lust. I do have a few tools and accessories that I would hate to be without. Some were a bit costly, some didn’t cost anything and several were designed and created by my ingenious husband, Randy.
