Reading Lately / 4

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Over the long weekend I picked up a stack of reading material from the 635 section and got started on my self-paced lifelong gardening course. I am particularly interested in learning how to maximize small spaces, since this year I'll have my first 5 x 10 community garden plot. Which, of course, makes me wild with excitement. A few years ago I planted a garden with a friend in Utah. We used the backyard of another friend and shared garden responsibilities throughout the summer. Our potatoes and squash thrived, while we had difficulty with scraggly carrots and temperamental tomatoes. But we did it and it turned out to be such a great experience. Growing conditions in the Midwest are a little different (and cross-my-fingers won't be hampered by drought this season), which means I'll be learning as I go. Feel free to pass along your own growing tips and stay tuned for more garden stories.
