Every Year My Garden Gets a Little Bit Better
I always grew up with gardening, and small farming. Living in a rural northern NY town everyone I knew had gardens. Everyone I knew had flower beds and most people I knew took that to a small farm level where they had their entire backyards turned into vegetable plots. Before I got married I always had at least a small plot going wherever I lived. However when Hubby and I moved into our current home I was worried. We lived on the main street of town where hundreds of people drove and walked by our house everyday. It is a daily chore to remove trash tossed into our yard by passerbys. I figured any garden grown by us would get trampled. So the first year we lived here I had a small garden in pots on the windowsill of our bay window. I grew some flowers and herbs but nothing too spectacular.
