But... it did start with a plant garden. My parents moved to their current house in 2000 and spring 2001 I started my garden. We fenced off 44x56 feet of space from the deers. Yeah, I realize that's 2464 square feet of garden. And I live in a 480 SF apartment!!
The family split the garden into 4ths with pathway bricks - one for me, one for each of my sisters and one for my parents/brother. And I'm the one who used EVERY inch of their spot, as you can see. :)
Yup, it creep over the boundaries and snuck outside the fence. I loved it!! It's almost like a jungle with it's 3-D look. Corn, peas, squashes, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, pumpkin, morning glories and sunflowers grew in it. Definately the best garden I ever had.
Now you can see why my email address is "sunflowersinthegarden at gmail dot com". This is the picture that inspired it! :)
Other good news: (yeah, another list)
It is just me? I've noticed quite a few other quilter bloggers have been declining in their posts. I guess spring has been calling to us! I'm sure when it gets too hot we'll happily park ourselves in front of the computer with a big cold drink and post... and maybe whine. ;)
