I have a dream. A dream that one day itty bitty chickens will walk and cluck free in my garden. So to that end I bought a book. That’s all I’ve done but hey it’s a book. I’m now thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much closer to my dream.
The house we’ve moved into has some lovely gardens. They’re a bit overgrown as I don’t think the old couple who lived here were able to keep up with it towards the end. I’ve been reading up on how to prune roses. We have lots of roses! I’m very excited about this as I love roses so I’m hoping to bring them back to life. We had loads of blackberries but I’ve pulled all those up as they were wild brambles and although they were very tasty there were really a weed that choked the life out of everything else. I’ve picked up a blueberry and raspberry bush that in time I hope will provide up w/ lots of yummy goodness. Also picked up seed potatoes and onions. Am on the look out for carrots, cucumbers, french beans, strawberries and cherry tomatoes. I might try some heirloom tomatoes too, I’ve heard they’re unbelievable delicious. I’m also putting an old carpet (lucky for me I just removed the old yucky bathroom carpet!) over a couple of the raised beds to warm them up for some early planting. The tip came from Deb over at Carrots and Kids – go read her blog she’s fab. It’s fab! I’m calling my little adventure Project Greenfingers!! Yes, I do need to label all my projects.
