|Me in My Mom’s Garden|
With the weather warming up a bit, well expect for last weekend snow storm, I have gardening on my mind. I want to get an early start on planting my garden this year, I got a late start last year. I have tried various spots in the yard over the years to place my garden. I think it currently resides in location number four in eleven years. Our yard is a typical city lot, so not huge by any stretch of the imagination, any space I can dedicate helps. in addition to the dedicated location for the garden itself, I think I am going to plant in a few additional places in the yard this year. Without the dog around this summer there will be no fear of her digging it up for a nice cool place to sleep. My daughter loves to help with so it will be easier to manage. I am envious of the garden space my mom had at the house I grew up in. It was huge, I don’t know how she kept up with it.
A few new things I plan to try in this summers garden, beets, garlic, and edible flowers. But again I will dedicate most of the space to tomatoes, especially heirloom ones. Sure they look pretty in an ugly kinda way, but it is the low acidity that wins me over.
