Its also a great time for ordering seed catalogs if you are not already on the companies mailing lists. Some have already started sending them out and the others soon will be, and you can use the form email below for a great selection to get you started.
You can also link to their websites (below) and browse their catalogs online to reduce shipping and paper use (but most can be used for sheet mulching)
Burpee Seed Company (great descriptions & pictures even if I don't usually order from them), Seed Savers Exchange, Territorial Seed Company, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, Johnny's Selected Seeds, Bountiful Gardens, Fedco Seeds, and One Green World
Here are some email addresses to request the free seed and nursery catalogs. Just copy and paste these addresses into an email asking for one of their catalogs, with your name and address.
