Linda Mann asked:
: Don't they know we NEED those catalogs to get through the winter? : )
But that's what OLD catalogs are for -- winter dreams & schemes. My personal
favorites are the Austin, Craig, and Muhlestein catalogs from the 50s & 60s.
Great reading and they usually contain more information that anyone can afford
to print today.
: Who are the January eager growers?
Those with an abundant supply, incredible optimism -- or both. Our catalog
doesn't go out until late February, or even the first of March if we've had a
late, hard winter because it's possible to get a much better projection of the
expected supply AFTER the plants have broken their winter dormany. Things can
still go wrong, of course, like last summer's flash flood -- but overall this
means fewer substitutions and refunds and thus happier customers. : )
