Poor neglected garden blog! It's been an interesting few years in my absence here. Well, "interesting" in the Chinese curse sense of the word, naturally. We've had medical and financial issues to deal with, as well as the sheer psychoticness that is raising a pair of teen-agers. But this year I want my garden back, dammit. So we're planning modestly: we're going to build out four stacked stone boxes, fill them with a gorgeous mix of soil, peat, and compost, and grow only what I can get these carnivores to eat...plus a metric shiteload of tomatoes for the freezer. I'm actually so far ahead of the game right now that I'm starting seeds today, and we'll build the first of the boxes this next week for the snow peas. Garden ahoy!
