garden projects seriously bring me joy. in order to get this vege garden going we are having a huge section of our backyard disced. the tractor will come and dig up and turn over all the blackberry bush heads, the old stump, weeds, and grass. i am very excited. don't worry, before and after pictures will be posted. the dilemma i am now facing is how much to plant. i know i should start small, but small is boring. the lists of plants keeps growing. i have to take advantage of portland's wonderful growing season and how much space we have. not to mention i have a wee one needing lots of greens and yummy homegrown food.
