Yay Dirt! 2012

My first report for 2012:

Two raised beds prepped and ready, five to go. Plus a pretty large corner tree/flower bed we're installing. Yay dirt!

We're scaling way back this year and only trying to grow things we are interested in eating/using, which means lots of tomatoes, jalapenos, herbs, eggplant, carrots, and maybe some onion & garlic. 

I hope this year will be the year of the.... CHICKEN. We're researching coop plans and breeds now. I'm…

Getting The Most From My Small Kitchen Garden

A bountiful kitchen garden in a small backyard is my goal. I use raised beds and companion garden to optimize my space.

The Garden and the Gardener Evolve

This is my first post on my blog here on Garden-Share. I would like to let you know a little about my garden and me, the gardener. First, let me say the garden and the gardener are always changing, always growing, and both can be frustrating!

My garden started small and has evolved over the years as I have learned more about gardening through books, magazines, dear friends, and the always reliable, 'trial and error'. Due to the size of my back yard and a not-so-great back, I have…

A True Chicago Gem - The Garfield Park Conservatory







Yesterday I took my 2 year old daughter on an impromptu visit to the Garfield Park Conservatory. We were in the vicinity because I had to do some flowers for a client so I decided that rather than hop on the highway and go back home to the burbs we'd stick around in the city (Chicago) and enjoy the beautiful weather at the Conservatory.



I'm glad we went -… Continue

Fresh from the garden lunch!



So today was a very chilly day in Chicagoland - the kind of day that requires jeans and a fleece windbreaker to keep warm. Despite the chill we had my parents over for a lunchtime bbq featuring fresh picked produce from the garden! We had a nice caesar salad made with fresh red sails and simpsons black seeded lettuces, fresh picked broccoli with lemon zest and garlic, and just off the vine sugar snap… Continue

"Great picture, Joseph. We had one in our garden about 3 weeks ago and it startled me when I suddenly saw it on the tomato plant I was tending. I love that they eat the bad bugs in the garden. But I must say that I was horrified recently when I saw a…"
