Welcome Spring (almost)!
It’s a new year, and a new garden. I learned so much last year, growing (or trying to grow) a vegetable garden; unfortunately, the Seattle area had a bit of a bad weather year for edibles (at least in my garden). So this year I’ll be scaling the edibles way back, and focusing more on the flowers and other ornamentals that I love. I’ll still have my blueberries (maybe this year both plants will produce berries) and my little patch of strawberries, and the various herbs that made it through the winter. But most likely I’ll be replanting the veggie garden from last year with flowers.
This blog used to be called “Learning to Grow Food” but I decided that I’d better change it, since my focus won’t be on edibles any more (though I considered changing it to “Failing to Grow Food.” Ha!).
Anyway, here are a few of the new green things that have started to appear as this long and chilly winter winds down.
