Garden Goodness

April 8, 2010

Finally! I have my very own p-patch on Phinney Ridge! After 3 years on the wait list, I get my own little 10x10 of gardening paradise.

The funny thing about it is, I am taking three classes this quarter and I don't know when I will get a chance to put on my sunhat and dig in the dirt. (So if you want to share this little plot of land with me, please let me know. No cost to you.)

So now, I'm filling out the official application and daydreaming of the goodies I will nurture and harvest this summer. Here's what I have so far...



Strawberries! Yum!

Peas Please!

Lots and Lots of Mint = Lots and Lots of Mojitos!


A variety of dahlias...my fave.
(The secret is cow manure. Right, Mom!?!


Plump, Juicy Blueberries!
Do you have any other ideas?
I've mulled over many other veggies, but I am not sure I will eat them. A pumpkin vine, carrots, cucumbers, and a small herb garden may also be on the list.
I'm so excited I can hardly wait, but I'm nervous too. My history with houseplants hasn't been so lovely. If you have any tips, I'd love to hear them!
