Berry stained finger tips.
I love this gardening gig.
I only wish I had a bigger yard with more berry growing space...not just berries but all sorts of produce. Ultimately, I would love to have a nearly sustainable garden...fruit bearing trees, bushes laden with berries, vines of squash and melon and a plethora of veggie goodness. It goes without saying, but in my nearly sustainable garden I would have chickens...lots of them. Maybe even a goat for milk and cheese...that is sustainable right?
This year I have blueberry bushes with berries ripening, Olallieberries, the most delicious lemons, lettuce thriving in a barrel and a smallish garden plot. My garden grows with radishes, herbs, carrots, peas, scallions, swiss chard, tomatoes, peppers, lonely cucumber and squash vines. A wee bit of this and that which will amount to a small harvest but a harvest I can call my own.
Of course I want more.
I should be more grateful...I have a garden and outdoor space, I live where produce grows year round and we get the greatest fruit at local farmers markets.
Really what more could I ask for?
