One of the best things about seed catalogs is all the information they contain. You can learn about the growing conditions, size, and spacing of plants. Sometimes the catalogs suggest best uses for the vegetable and occasionally give recipes.
Personal opinion here: whether you order seeds from Baker Creek or not, order the catalog. The photographs will positively inspire you, they are so beautiful! And we hope the Lord inspires you about your garden.
