I forgot to mention that I planted my very first garden. It seems that spring has come early in Portland, and while the nights are still cold – I believe we are past the last freeze. So, last weekend – with the helping of my gardening guru of a mother – I planted a plethora of winter veggies! I planted 2 kinds of rosemary (of course), yellow onions, garlic, arugula, spinach, cilantro, and dill. I plan on planting peas and kale this weekend! I am still waiting for warmer temperatures to plant the summer veggies – tomatoes, zuccini, cucumber, etc.
Since we currently rent our house – and have no idea when our landlord intends to sell – I am doing mostly container gardening (hence why everything in the picture is in pots). For the last 6 years, I have mostly lived in apartments and haven’t had the opportunity to garden. While it is a bit scary to me (I kill even the most resilient house plants), I am so glad that I finally live in a place where I can garden. Here is to hoping I have a green thumb!
