Some people have a back forty; I've got a back decimal point. But it doesn't matter how big or small, it is what you do with the space. I love my back decimal point, a plot of land tucked between the back of our garage and the wood fence that separates us from neighbors on two sides. This is my patch of country in the city. This is my garden.
Here, my mid-summer journal with some hastily snapped iPhone photos.
Last year was our very first attempt at gardening edibles, and I've decided I need to keep track of growth, successes and failures. Besides occasional questions to my gardening friends and a google search every once in a while, I'm just figuring it out as I go. I should get more studious about this. Mister and Sophie made three great raised beds measuring 4x6, and I've used surrounding earth for overflow and larger plants.
