My Square Foot Garden

June 30, 2010 photo

I have so many different passions in my life,  I thought I might start to share some of them. Give my blog a little more personality......

I love to garden and have been doing so for over 30 years. I should be an expert, but I'm not. Do I still love it? Yes! Every year things seem to go "a-rye" in the fields but I never get discouraged. This year, however, I picked up a new Magazine "The Urban Farm".  Wow! What a great magazine.  I love it. I read through every page.

They had this wonderful article by Mel Bartholomew on how to grow a square foot garden. I have somewhat been doing the same thing over the last few years. My method, however, was more of the hodge podge garden and I never knew what was coming up were. But I really liked the idea of having little patches of plants here and there, rather than the straight row method.

Mel goes through his square foot garden step by step. It makes total sense and is really quite easy. So I thought this year I would give it a try.

I LOVE IT!!!  I have hardly had to weed or thin out my plants. The varieties  I was able to put in the garden, almost doubled. It's also easy to reseed when one crop is done.

Yes, after 30 years, I think I finally found my method and style of gardening that suits me.

Thanks Mel and the Urban Farm team!

Farewell to the Flight - Hello to the new Passage

I can't believe that our ecourse with Kelly Rae Roberts has come to a close. I won't say end because something like that never ends.

We were given an abundant amount of valuable information during the 5 week experience - we met many new friends - we came out of our boxes to experience the energy that was hovering around us.

How wonderful the experience was.
 Now we are.........
 to soar on our own
to use the knowledge we have gathered
and to live the creative life we imagine

I am ready to enter into this new passage. It will be slow at the start (because of my precious daughter's wedding in August), then steadily escalate....
