The Stokes Seed catalog came today!  I am not exactly ready for it but those tomatoes do look good.

That's a real "wish book" :)  It could use more photos though (I like a certain ageratum and it would be nice if they pictured all the colors).

Ha!  I just got mine today too!  It's sitting on the table open to the cabbage section.  Not sure why...

Apparently the Thompson and Morgan has been sent out too.  I ordered one but it hasn't come yet.  We got Vermont Bean which came from Wisconsin :)

Anyone have experience? They are pricey, but they seem to have the likeliest marigolds and nicotiana that I wanted.

I guess I am also going to have to try to grow Pearly Everlastings again and can only find them at one place.  They did grow wild but I don't know if they are still there or not.  We grew them one other year but DH mixed up all the seeds and had the money plants instead of the pearly everlastings.  He put the money plants in a really bad location and who knows what happened to the pearly everlastings?  Hopefully, I can stay healthy this spring and raise a few seeds..

Park Seed came today although I don't think they are as good as they once were.  I haven't looked at it yet.

I did find out which ageratum I like, which is Blue Hawaii, but I don't know if it's worth it to try to grow them or not.  I'd ordered from Stokes before.  Sometimes we can find them and last year the ageratums didn't do well anyway. 

Maybe they are really too bright - I don't know.  I could maybe lose the bright blue lawn ornament in them though.

Bluestone Perennials came yesterday too.  They have a special "limited" offer.  C'mon, it's December in PA, who's going to be dumb enough to order plants?  What do you think I should get?

Thompson & Morgan today with $10 off.  I think I will order since they have something, although I forget what, that no one else seemed to carry.

I am also trying to keep this alive until after the holidays when we will really need to think about ordering :)
