My vision of my backyard is having a lovely robust garden full of lush vegetables and herbs. Instead right now, it’s a pile of nothing. My mom tried to teach me and for about two weeks the garden was growing. Then the summer came and the 100-degree temps zapped all life out of my garden. So I’m attempting on a second try, a garden of my own. I just got a book from a friend called You Grow Girl: The Groundbreaking Guide to Gardening by Gayla Trail. Fantastic! I knew this book and I would be a perfect fit once I saw the back cover blurb by Debbie Stoller, editor of Bust and author of my favorite knitting books, Snitch ‘n Bitch.
I just started reading the book tonight and it’s already way easier to understand than most gardening books I’ve looked at. So here’s to my forays into gardening. Wish me well!
