So I was standing on my back slab of cement staring out at all this grass and fence and realized that I like flowers. I like things that smell good, taste good, look good and I love being outside when it's not so cold.
I looked over at my 8' X 8' sandbox imagining my two girls playing in that this summer and being able to run all over the yard and I was longing for the sunshine. Then the next three days were full of just that - glorious sunshine and 65* weather...I was SO excited! I thought of Bella, my 4 year old, in my mom's garden eating strawberries and beans and peas and all sorts of edible flowers. It was then that I looked over at my 2 gallon pot with a few strawberry plants in it and the dream started. I am going to have a garden.
My garden will be a few important things:
90% edible contents
Easy to maintain
Beautiful and productive
I wanted to research just how much our water bill would be in the summer so I got online and tried to look at the previous bills. I couldn't because there was a glitch in the system. So I kindly wrote the previous tenant an email and she immediately responded and within the hour the problem was fixed! I said all this to say that her and I have been emailing ever since and she is the sole reason I started this blog! She has a blog and it is ADORABLE! She now lives across the country and it has been a lot of fun learning about how they lived in this very house and now she wants to do a garden as well! She told me to do a blog about it and my homesteading desires so here it goes!
Jennie, hopefully this blog is as entertaining as our emails have been!
