is it spring yet?

I ordered a bunch of gardening stuff over the weekend–the main thing being a “grow light” system so that I can start my own plants from seed. Now, I’m anxious to start planting! The seed catalogs usually start coming out after Christmas, so the planting season is closer than it appears. I’ll probably have to start planting stuff inside around February/March. I already have my garden plotted out for next year–how’s that for anal?

Yes, I am the Queen of Anal Retentiveness. What can I say, I like to plan. I got it from my mother. I used to think all of her planning was ridiculous, but I have far eclipsed any planning benchmarks she ever set. I mean, I even have a “to do” list for the house that has the year a change is planned for. I could go on and on with more examples, but I probably shouldn’t. That said, I should probably go and make another list or something.
