During late February when I am usually lusting over seed catalogs, we decided that we would take a pass on the vegetable garden this year because of the timing of Isaac's birth. We have plenty of edible perennials in our yard and weekly farmer's markets to scratch the local produce itch. Instead, we committed to focusing our garden energies on clean up projects and making 2012 a year for subtraction rather than addition.
Of course, I am a big cheater. Yes, those are tomato plants growing no-till style in my weedy garden bed. And maybe there are basil seeds germinating in the herb garden. Oh, and a few sunflowers for the children.
Friends, I am an incorrigible gardener.
