I placed my Fedco seed order this week. This summer's garden will hold all kinds of new experiments for me. I will be working in a space that is roughly 15'x25'. Most of it is deck and gravel. I am trying to be thrifty and crafty in creating my planters. Old freestanding, iron bathtub anyone... I'm also doing a lot of research on growing in small places. I'm planning on trellising my melons, cucumbers, squash, beans and peas, as well as some flowers. I am going to attempt a version of the sunflower house in the book 'Roots, Shoots, Buckets and Boots' on our upper deck. Hoping I can get some local restaurants to give me their used five gallon buckets to plant in. Now as the snow falls thick I get to sketch and dream and wait for my box of gold to arrive.
