The heirloom garden catalogs have arrived, our Christmas tree was dry and has been taken down (way too early, so it was replaced with a white lights tree to take me through winter), I'm ready to part with the sweets and treats that were staple foods while I was in my "holiday hole" and the holiday cards I did not yet send have become "winter wishes" cards. That means it's time for a new year! Happy New Year! Happy New Decade! My favorite line, that I think is quite witty, is that "it will all be clear in 2020".
