Gardening Around the Edges


Today is the 50th Earth Day!

Although most of us can’t go out in nature to appreciate our planet this year, we can go out and garden. Even if it’s just containers on your balcony or herbs in your window.

As most of you know, I live on a lot and a half in a city of about 174,000. I garden around the edges.

Our soil is damp and claylike, so it takes some time in the spring for the ground to dry properly for tilling or amending. I have just a couple raised beds and numerous large barrel-width containers to get around this. I also have a south-facing sunroom, so I’m able to start seed easily inside. You can browse through my blog posts to see various photos of my garden over the years. (Like this one, for example.)

Since it’s early yet, my garden is just at its beginning stages. Today, for Earth Day, I’m sharing my progress.
