Welcome to my adventures in urban gardening!
I live in Brooklyn, NY
(Zone 7a) (make that 7b according to the NEW, recently revised official USDA NY Plant Zone Hardiness Map from )
My husband and I are lucky enough to have a backyard here, so I’ve been getting back to growing food again.
I’ve grown vegetables all of my life, but I’m a newbie when it comes to planting and caring for most perennials. I have lots to learn and I’m enjoying the process!
My garden is a continual work in progress. It is a playground, creative outlet, meditation, supplemental food source, and my own little oasis in this big city. I garden organically and I try to attract and care for wildlife.
One day I hope to live in the country again and maybe even have a few chickens and goats. In the meantime I try to do as much gardening, cooking, bread-baking, canning, and knitting as I can here in the city…usually with a cat on my lap, nearby, or watching me through a window.
I love connecting with other gardeners and crafters and I welcome your comments and feedback!
