Harris Seeds urges me back to the Garden!

After what could arguably be the most difficult year of my life I think I may be ready to rejoin the "rest of the world". My daughter's Epilepsy diagnosis nearly a year ago sent me into a bit of a tailspin. It seemed like living in the Twilight Zone. While she doesn't have good seizure control yet we are working towards the goal.
I was just beginning to think that maybe it's time to reconnect with those forgotten hobbies when I got a gift in the mail...My Harris Seeds Catalog. I thumbed through the pages and began thinking, "This year's garden will be better!" (Well, after the horrible results last year it couldn't be much worse!) Then just this morning Harris Seeds sent me a second gift...An e-mail invitation to a Seed Starting Seminar!
After watching this seminar I was impressed! While I knew (or thought I knew) most of the steps in seed starting this seminar answered all the "Why?" 's. I found it to be a wonderful, comprehensive, easy to understand, and thoroughly enjoyable seminar! So if you have some time (it is quite legnthy--in a good way) I highly recommend a visit to Harris Seeds if not for the seminar then for their seeds!

It's so good to see you back blogging and talking about gardening. I know the past year has been tough on you and i'm glad that you're now able to make some time for you. We're glad to see you!

I'm so glad to see you back! Dealing with a child's illness has to be exhausting, and when you live in one of the richest countries in the world but can't get health insurance, it has to be infuriating as well. So like Jodi, I'm glad you're eeking out some time for yourself. Welcome back!

So good to see you back! It's so difficult dealing with a child's chronic illness. Unfortunately I've been there, and I can really empathize with what you must be going through. Like Jodi and Kate, I'm glad you're finding some bits of time for yourself. I know how hard that is to do, and how important too, in order to recharge our own batteries.

There's nothing like a good seed catalog to draw us back into our gardens! Hope you found lots of goodies!
