Hi, I'd love to hear what's in your garden, and look at any garden pics you post. I've got a few pics up at my lj as well as my "planted today" lists.. which if you check out you might notice some of which are daringly late this year, as I didn't start seeds under lights this early spring (I was growing wheat grass for my cats) :D I'm in Massachusetts where the growing season kinda doesn't start until the end of May anyway, lots of short season crops for me, especially this year. How about you? Where do you garden?I've been into permaculture, organic gardening, heirloom seed, biodiversity, herbs, and companion planting for 4 or 5 years now, before that I lived in an apartment with no patio, so my living room had big tables full of herb plants up against every window. Man is it awesome to be able to get to know how to garden on the land! I love it.So, what's in your garden this year, what are your favorites to grow, are you trying any new things this year, what are some of your uses for what you grow? Whatever you want to tell me about is fun.
O thanks for the information on the compost pile!! I am exdcited about it! Since this is my/our first year gardening, I can use all the information I can get!!!!!I have never tasted the thinmbleberries and I also did not know what they were until sidhefire offered them at Beltaine....I am just kind of babying them right now as they are still babies.....The gourds I was thinking of drying out and using as marakahs (sp?) I found some information on drying them out and things you can use them for. I would also like to make a bird house from them....I am also adding some violas to the mix, because they are wild and will come back again and again.....I love to work with our earth, it is so grounding and feels so good!
