More than statewide because I know they are in MD too. Not sure about down here. I should check, then give them a call.

Arlene,
I didn't say world wide because I'm not sure about that, but I didn't know how to put it for the whole United States. I think they are happy to drop it off.

Thanks Arlene!
That was interesting. I didn't know it was such an old company and apparently very successful. It seems to be household name, lol!

Asplundh is in Oregon but mostly working on the west side of the state where there are more trees. Much of the east side is desert and low population, not many roads and not many power lines. The load I got was processed by a local company.

In a few days it will be 2018. Today was the winter solstice. I am always glad to get over this hump and have the days begin to get longer instead of shorter.

This week I found one of my winter squash had become mush. Somehow I was able to carefully pick it up with both hands and carry it to the garden for disposal without loosing any of it. A quick exam of the remaining squash didn't reveal any more problems. Today I carefully picked up each one and examined them all. No more problems! After the first of the year I can sell a few more of them at the co-op. I still have garlic to sell.

Seed catalogs have begun arriving, tempting me to try new things.

At this point in our winter we have just a wee bit of snow. The ground is pretty much frozen but I can still dig a hole in the garden rows to bury the kitchen trimmings. Last year at this time we had so much snow that I couldn't even wade through it to get to the garden to bury anything. It's been a blessing not to be fighting the weather, however we do need the moisture.

I'm glad to be going the other way too. But winter really hasn't even begun yet here. January is when the weather really turns cold.

I still have two squash in the closet. I think I better have a look at them myself. There's so much to eat, my eyes kind of slide over them.

I have a small stack of seed catalogs too. I've looked thru Baker's Creek and made a list in my mind, lol! I really need to try canning different things. I considered broccoli rabe, but read it's bitter, so I'm up in the air about trying it.

I had rain yesterday. It rained longer than I thought it would. There has been so little of it this year that I would welcome a snowy winter.

I always find this a reflective time - remembering what did well in the garden and what didn't.

LOVE the longer days!

Vicki,
Laughing. ''Remembering'' for me is actually writing down what I did and didn't like from the garden. I keep all my empty seed packets too.

I need to do a seed inventory before making any new purchases. Tossing out old seed that might not germinate is something I am reluctant to do because it might still be good.

Do you ever test germination in damp paper towel? I have some lettuce seed I need to do this with. My new seed purchases will be minimal this year.

Thanks for that reminder, Arlene. I need to start some lettuce in the greenhouse and might also do some beets so if the tested ones sprout I can put them into pots.

I keep telling David I need to do that too but I still haven't gotten around to it. I get the urge when I'm hankering for a fresh salad but it seems to pass.

Mary,
I used to do that too, but now, if I haven't had good germination, the seed gets tossed. I wish all the companies would sell smaller packets like PineTree Gardens does.

Winter has begun and we all crave fresh garden vegetables.
