I'm not a cold weather person. I'm usually ready for spring around, oh, December 22. More so than usual today, when we awoke to find that our boiler (yes, we have steam heat) was overflowing and consequently not working. I think the temperature last night was something like 12 degrees, and the high today is supposed to be in the 20s. So, cold. The heating repairman has been working on the boiler for over six hours now. It's a chilly but bearable 65 degrees in the dining room where I'm working. The fingerless gloves help.
Seed catalog people understand people like me, which is why they send out their garden porn in January. I ordered some seeds from Renee's Garden . They arrived yesterday, and it was only then that I understood that I might have gone a little overboard.
So, for you Champaign-Urbana area readers, I'm likely to have way more tomato and pepper seedlings than I can plant--which means you can have some, as well as seeds that you can plant outdoors.
