Where ya been?

Saturday, 16 Jun 12 Storms 33°C / 91°F

I’ve been puttering in my own garden; the real work has been going on for The Peterson Garden Project, where I’ve spent the last two weeks finishing the Grow2Give beds, including the massive “demo garden” at our “Global Gardens” site. If you’re in Chicago, come on over to Lawrence and Sacramento and take a look. We’ve got 12 4×6′ raised beds plus about 40 smartpot type planters. Follow the blog at We Can Grow It to learn about who we are and what we’re doing.

Meanwhile, my own garden’s a weedy mess, but I am getting some nice harvests! Here comes a massive photo update!

    I like how the raspberries look, growing up against the building. Reminds me of how my grandfather grew his.

    They’ve migrated all over the garden. They finally landed in this narrow (maybe 6") of soil along my neighbor’s garage, where they are separated from the garden by 3 feet of sidewalk. This has kept them confined for several years; unfortunately this year I noticed that they have finally found their way under the sidewalk and are coming up in the asparagus (which, ironically, is where they started).
