My Mom’s Garden

July 23rd, 2008

I think I caught the gardening bug from my mom. She’s always been an avid gardener, both ornamental & edible. When I was young we had a HUGE vegetable garden at my grandparents house out in the country. We worked in the garden all summer and then canned and preserved all the produce we grew. About 15 years ago my parents moved to a new house with a nice-sized city lot. There was a ton of room for gardens. They have an orchard, a small garden and many ornamental beds. I think this bed was the first one put it – it’s called “The Garden of Eden”. It’s in a small fairly wet area of their yard. It looks great throughout the summer with things blooming all the time. This photo was taken on July 11.

Mr. Chiots loves these plants. I’m going to get a start from my mom.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
