Part of my Life List is to grow a successful garden every year. I wrote that the season before we moved. So, 2010. Maybe even 2009. We spent the gardening season of 2010/2011/2012 living in rental units, rental homes and finally settling in to this house. I had my concrete planters full of herbs but no other vegetables or plants since our last garden on Ardmore.
(And my baby was still a baby)
But twenty-thirteen is going to be a good year. My fingers can feel it.
I don’t have pretty photos (yet) but it’s planted! And we have …
Summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, sugar snap peas.
Basil, tomatoes, lettuce, swiss chard, celery (and just planed some green onions).
Melon, cabbage, brussel sprouts, kale, different herbs, and spinach.
In a smaller box not pictured yet we have raspberries and strawberries for the kids. I need to transplant my blueberries (I have two bushes) and at some point I’ll find a place for our 6-tree orchard. Pear, Cherry, Apple.
I might even get some bees.
On the flower front we have peonies, ranunculus, poppies, mums, a few things I don’t know how to spell, hostas, lily of the valley, lilac trees, some surprises, and tulips. I’ve started wisteria and hops for spreading vines and I can’t wait to throw dinner parties in the garden.
