Love Thursday: Plant Porn


I know I will just buy my seeds (to the extent that I even try to grow plants from seed) from my local nursery.

I know that in the event they don't have what I need I could simply order seeds online.  

I know that it's wasteful and frivolous and downright tree-murdering of me not to tell them to stop sending you.

But I just can't pull the trigger on our relationship, Seed Savers Exchange Catalog.  Because when you come in the mail, and I run my hands over your bright and glossy cover....when I open you up to discover gorgeous shots of 18 different varieties of cucumber...mysterious things like dinosaur gourds...miraculous things like sunflowers...and tomatoes...I just can't help myself.  I have to peruse you over and over and over again....
