Victory Garden

A girl can dream, right?

A girl can dream, right?


So I’m thinking that Sunday I’d like to take advantage of this outrageous weather we’re having (high 70’s!) and work in the garden.  I saw this article on HuffPo and it renewed my interest in my relationship with my food. 

In summers past we have grown grape tomatoes in the back yard and I found it immensely satisfying to be able to add something to my table by stepping out my back door.  I can’t wait until I have a large amount of land to work with and truly eat seasonally, and largely cultivated with my own dirty hands.  Summer in my neighborhood is mostly socked in with fog (duh) and now I’m on the brink of winter – which is not the time to be growing things.

My mom keeps an insane garden, but that’s one of the benefits of living in the desert – the ability to grow almost year-round.  I do plan on putting in mostly grasses, ground cover and maybe something bushy that flowers – but is there any food stuff I can put in the ground at this late date?

  1. Yep. There is…we can work out something when you are here. Just bring some measurments and we will draw it out. You have a wonderful source for seeds in the East Bay….kitazawaseed.com. They have greens to die for. We even tried the Japanese cucumbers…OMG…you don’t even have to peel them. Look at the website and then get one of the catalogs. You will not be sorry.
