In the Garden

June 18, 2012

I’ve been a major gardening slacker this season.  I would love to have a lush garden bursting with tasty possibilities, but I just haven’t been able to get myself to the place of follow through.  Part of the reason is that we have been house hunting!  And while I tour homes and look at back yards, I couldn’t really invest in planting a bunch of goodies only to have to leave them behind in a move. That said, we do have some flower pots and hanging planters that could come with us.

PB and I did scatter some seeds a few weeks back Jackson Polluck style, which has led to some interesting sprout patterns.  Like one pea plant amidst a sea of red leaf lettuce…

But the artichokes I planted last summer are going gangbusters, and I have already harvested 4 thorny morsels.  Our strawberries are also doing very well, though it’s a trick beating the slugs to the ripe berries.

How does your garden grow?

    Those artichokes look delicious! Good luck with the house hunt!

    Not gardening for food, except for the 5 blueberry bushes that I put in several years ago. Looks like a bumper crop, again!
    I thought artichokes needed more sun that we’re getting. Those look great.
    Good luck with the house hunt!

    Our artichokes have gone crazy despite the lack of sun. When we do get a clear day, they’re in full sun for most of it so that helps.
