It’s officially spring here, though the cold wet and windy weather today might have you believing otherwise. Despite the lack of sunshine I am embarking on my annual garden dreaming event. It’s where I look at seed catalogues and browse web sites and dream up gardens that I can’t possibly prepare, let alone plant or manage. Want to join me? Here are some lovely links to get you started…
Some garden blogs that I am loving right now…
Skippy’s Vegetable Garden – This gardener packs a lot into her backyard veggie garden and I LOVE the photos of the garden in all seasons on her side bar.
The Duck Herder – a lovely Aussie blog full of growing goodness.
Au Couer Du Jardin – ever wanted to move to France? Then go drool over this gorgeous French garden. And to think I never used to like flowers much, now I’m drooling over a garden full of them!
Some garden things that I want to do and make…
Good old Martha always has good ideas, or at least her staff do. I want to try these stick plant markers from Martha Stewart.
We kept the old tired when the Big Whit Bus got new ones and the tire guy said we could come back and take as many as we like! I’m thinking of something like this tire wall for one edge of our veggie garden. It seems a good way to make a wall sheltering other plants and raising up some things that really don’t like to be near our clay soil.
I’m going to grow lots of flowers in our veggie garden this year, and I’m collecting sticks to make garden structures. Check out images 2 and 8 from this beautiful Connecticut Kitchen Garden.
Garden resources I love…
All of Jackie French’s gardening books. I own and love Back Yard Self Sufficiency and have borrowed lots of others from the library.
Eden Seeds are my favourite seed supplier. Their services is awesome and they have a huge variety.
And here’s my pinterest garden and growing board for a bit more inspiration.
