A New Year brings wonderful possibilities, this time in the form of a new venture with new friends. Between the holidays we met up with friends Eva and Patricia to get the ball rolling on a organic gardening cooperative. Between tea, cookies and lively chatter we have our plan for the growing season 2012. Who will grow what and where has been decided! We'll chat more about how often to meet up and how to go about harvesting at each others houses but I definitely think we're on to something here ...
I feel like Eva and Patricia are doing so much more than I am so I jumped at the chance of being in charge of our pumpkin and squash starts - our bathroom window will be perfect for it and there's nothing better than getting to watch their sweet little leaves popping out of the soil.
Patricia will grow primarily beans and peas along with tomatoes in her green house. But I think Eva got the worse end of the stick this year .. she's got all the root (carrots, turnips, beets) and brassicas (cabbages and sprouts).
I'm chopping at the bit ... and started a Pinterest board just for vegetable growing. Stay tuned .. there will be much to show and share and don't be afraid to throw a question or two at us .. we'll do our best to answer.
A side note on languages ... for the time-being I will be posting in English while Eva and Patricia post in Nederlands (Dutch). Bear with us ... and make use of the translation tool in the right column. Yeh, I know .. Google isn't great but it's better than nothing.
