Victory Garden Idea
It’s just starting to warm up a little bit, but I’m already thinking of the coming growing season. What with the fluctuation of food prices, colony collapse disorders (some beekeepers are replacing their American honeybees with foreign bees- notably some from Australia, which are more aggressive than Western bees… fantastic!) and my general, healthy dose of skepticism, it’s a good time to get ready to plant. I’m thinking that cilantro, chives, lemon balm, strawberries, tomatoes, cukes, carrots, red peppers, green peppers, Thai basil, and some squash with a little lettuce thrown in should be a good start… May have to increase the size of the plot sometime…and purchase a box of ladybugs and some marigolds.
