In addition to the many beautiful flowers that grace my yard, I am expanding my efforts to grow some of our own food this year, despite the limitations of my small yard with no backyard. I’ve repurposed containers previously dedicated to flowers and baskets and a sandbox previously devoted to other uses to grow an assortment of lettuces, radishes, carrots, onions, herbs, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, peas, beans, pumpkins and the like. I plan to chronicle it in photos, sharing here on occasion.
Above is my beloved wisteria, which grows around the ironwork of the front terrace. And below, a cucumber vine.
