It doesn’t take much. But I am so thrilled to finally have a garden. I chose the header for this blog FIVE years ago. The archetype of the vegetable garden was in my mind, but I haven’t even had a successful houseplant in that time. And now, in 2012, hubs and I have a community garden plot.
So… 4 homes, innumerable hostels, and many family members’ spare rooms later, we are living in a place where we can have a garden plot, and even this was scored by lottery from our municipal parks department.
It seems like a good time to revive this blog. We have been doing a lot of cooking and we are also *ta da* poor students again. Somehow, budget constraints make food blogging more interesting; maybe it’s to remind myself to eat well on less. So we’ll see what comes of THIS IS EDIBLE in the next few months. Until then, here’s our weedy patch and the results of our first work day:
Glass, tires, and weeds amuck
A small clearing and a wheelbarrow full of future compost.
Summer of gardening, here we come.
