I am starting a garden. After years of dreaming of a garden, and waxing nostalgic about my childhood vegetable garden with my father, I’ve decided that I’m doing it for real this year. I even went out and bought a hand shovel today. How’s THAT for commitment? Plus, I’ve got seeds from my father’s garden, seeds from the Korean store, and just…plain…seeds to sow.
The house I live in has enough of a yard for a vegetable garden–yet it’s taken me years to start one.
I’ve been eyeing a large patch of ground for my vegetable garden for years–the problem is that it’s on a very vertical slope. After years of planning tiers and other fancy options, I’ve decided to just go for it, without the tiers, and on a slope. I just don’t care anymore, I’m going to see where the land leads me. If nothing grows, so be it.
And maybe I’ll sneak in some of the more attractive vegetables throughout the rest of the more formal (and tiered) garden. Some green onions amidst the fuschia and hydrangeas could be interesting!
