In the beginning there were seeds that sprouted...
Some were put in pots for the seedling swap. Nearly 200 to be exact...
and others by way of three in a row self watering planters.
and with helps from tiny hands with pink shovels...
With bags in hand we tra la la to the seedling swap
What a day it was
We hurried home with warmth in our hearts.
We got to work, and this overgrown area went from very drab
To very empty...
Soon we began to fill our ground with treats from the seedling swap and our own grown seeds
an emergency DIY strawberry patch conjured up
As we filled our earth with green gold, we mulched
and in between we began to grow
and so we harvested
and because we couldn't quite wait we made fried green tomato salad while we waited for red ones to appear
and we garnished it with herbs from our vertical herb tower
above is my vertical herb tower to show my friends with limited space the endless possibilities
this week July 10 2014 we have even more progress
Do you see red? I do... I do... I do believe in gardening!
