Farmer in the City





Location:  Seattle, WA

The Digs:  Backyard, Containers, Front yard

Crops:  Basil, Blueberries, Carrots, Cherries, Collards, Cucumbers, Figs, Grapes, Kale, Lavender, Lettuce, Mint, Mustard Greens, Oregano, Peas, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Raspberries, Rosemary, Spinach, Strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas, Tomatoes, chard, hops,mache, summer and winter squash.

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  Both my love and I love to garden. We killed off all the grass in our yard and planted every square inch of ground we could find and then made some by cutting out some concrete out of a patio, plus we have containers everywhere. It's peaceful, rewarding "work".

    Hi! I was reading your profile entries and was wondering how it was going with removing your grass and doing something different. We're trying to do the same thing in our front yard right now. Will you be uploading pics anytime soon?

    Jamorjr congratulations on being farmer of the day yesterday. I like what you're doing...trying to use every bit of space. My husband and I are working on a plan to get rid of the grass in our front yard. I'm interested to see a picture of your birdhouse in the grape.
