Adventures in gardening, slowly.

This morning I began breakfast with yogurt and fresh raspberries from my yard yes fresh raspberries from my yard. Are you jealous? Because you should be. It was delicious.

In general we have garden issues. On the one hand, gardens are delightful. Fresh raspberries and more! But on the other hand, we don't know anything about gardens, with the result that the barbecue we had a couple of weeks ago devolved at the end into a weeding party where everyone scolded us about our morning glories (but then the kvetchers pulled them out, so it worked out okay in the end). Well, this weekend, we're going to be unstoppable. We're taking on the first planting bed.

We're going to rip everything out. Everything. Don't panic, the raspberries are elsewhere. But if we clear out the planting bed with all the stuff that's intergrown and unusable, then we'll have free soil to plant stuff with a late summer or fall harvest. So what should we plant?

I can't wait to pull up some dandelions this weekend. I am so ready.

Devolved?!? I can think of no more perfect end to housewarming than a weeding party! (says one guilty of the devolution)

How about greens in that first bed? You can start them from seed in rows three weeks apart and have lettuce all summer. Or you could go fancy and have arugula.
