Check out my pretty new maple tree! My uncle gave it to me along with a Ginkgo Biloba.


My AeroGarden Grows

h1 Friday, April 28th, 2006

As a belated birthday gift, my friend Chad gave me an AeroGarden! It is a bit hokey, and gimmicky, but i embrace that! I am a sucker for kits. Anything in a kit really – all the camping food with the packets and small containers, first aid kits, sewing kits, even the cheese and crackers that come with the little red spreading stick. OOh, and those tuna cracker kits with the mini mayo!

Anyway back to my Gourmet Herb Garden… Within a few days i had little sproutlets.
These photos are from about 2 weeks in (taken last night):




Thank You Chad! 😎

bed of dirt

h1 Wednesday, February 22nd, 2006

So one of my current projects is re-working a particular bed in my garden. there is a bench behind the bed and how it was planted before made it an uncomfortable place to sit. so i’ve cleared out all of the old plants (including some very thorny rose bushes), and have enriched the soil. Now it is ready to go!

All i need now is a plan.

Here is a picture of the empty garden bed:

Any suggestions?
