The sky is blue, the sun is shining, and the plants are happy here in the Pacific Northwest.
We moved to Oregon from Michigan in June, 2012 and have enjoyed mild green winters and long growing seasons.
It's the perfect spot to nest and get dirt under my fingernails. I've even had dirt under my toenails, but that's kind of gross. I probably shouldn't have mentioned that.
This year, my goal in the garden is to make it more edible and more"artsy." I've been scouring do-it-yourself garden decor articles to find some projects to do on a budget.
Our backyard is really small, and our dog Cobie has claimed one of the raised beds as his personal outdoor lounge area. That's okay; I've got the plans for vertical plantings and container gardens.
So, I'm hoping for an abundant imperfect organic backyard with some handmade pieces of garden art. It won't make it to the garden tour, but I hope it will be a great place to unwind.
