I'm not much of a front yard gardener. I mean, I do it, natch but- I prefer the more private setting of the back yard. Everyone walking by has something dumb to say when I'm working in my front yard- Them: "Hey, want to come over to my house next?" Me "Absolutely, I'm $75 an hour. What's your address" Them: running away
So we're getting geared up for this podcast this week, are you getting geared up to listen?
We would love to know! As we prepare to roll out our podcast, Amanda Thomsen of Horticulture's Kiss My Aster and I want to be sure you know that we are very interested in learning all about what's happening in your gardens. We are working on adding a social component to our site that will let you do just that, so please be patient with our efforts. Remember, this is good enough gardening, not perfect gardening...or blog design for that matter!
You may have been reading over at Gardener to Farmer that my neighbor Liz and I are yardsharing and we will be planting out some of the goodies we have grown in the greenhouse, as well as direct sowing some veggies this weekend. Though it is past the frost free date in Portland, we have a long cool spring so heat loving veggies like tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, squash, and beans won't go out for a while yet. But, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, lettuce, carrots, kale, mustard and chard are looking lovely! So are the tiny leeks we transplanted.
Sadly, I still haven't gotten around to planting potatoes. Though I noticed a few in the cupboard that had sprouted, so I think I will plant those. Well, we do the best we can, don't we?
Amanda and I will have our first podcast up by the end of the week and are looking forward to hearing from you! Stay tuned for more information!
