The smell of rain and daffodils is in the air, it's officially spring! Here's where I've been getting my seed porn this spring:

The pictures in the Seeds of Change catalogue are truly stunning and I love that all of their seeds are organically-grown and mostly heirloom varieties. Another great (and local!) seed source I'm ordering from this year is the D. Landreth Seed Company, in New Freedom PA, another company with an heirloom focus.

I also raided my parents house for gardening books and came back with the motherload!

In other news, chives are definitely not something I will try to plant from seed again. Look at those puny things.

But I did acquire some strawberry transplants from a friend which I put in a tub on the porch. We'll see what happens with them; I decided not to put them in my garden plot because they can take over (the reason I got the transplants is because my friend was cleaning out her new community garden plot which was overrun with the little buggers).

Finally, check out this amazing video:
