I have yet to order my seeds. As the other of my Martha Stewart like urban homesteader friends have already fashioned their own pots of cute paper that will beautifully bio-degrade.. you know who your perfect selves are.
Meanwhile I'm starting at the back end of a yard that looks like a construction site lives next door. Which makes perfect sense since one does live next door.
A few seedling trays and some leftover seeds from last season were not tucked away in some tidy drawer but in the junk drawer. Nice. Whats more worrisome is that I managed to fit an entire seedling tray in a junk drawer, without crinkling.
I'm off my little Urban Game right now, I blame Downtown Abbey.
But today I'm ordering seeds. I've put together my little budget for this years crops and will indulge in some seeds, glorious seeds.
Of course all the greens we can cram: swiss chard, broccoli, salad greens, mustard greens, etc.
Then there is a small corn patch, and two zucchini plots, and a very micro pumpkin patch.
This year my goal is to extend the garden scape to the front lawn but am in deep need of ideas for Treasure Valley area front garden-scapes.
And I'm stumped. Does anyone use their front yard?
I'm off to order seeds now. Not to watch Downton Abbey.
