Que’s Garden

July 15, 2009

When we bought our home a little over a year ago, we immediately started a compost pile. It took awhile for us to pay any attention to our yard (besides basic maintenance), because we just had other priorities inside the house.

What types of things do we like to grow? Anything with a seed! Really! While we are out shopping for groceries or eating a meal, if there is something that we think will grow for us at home, we try it. Anything! We  just disregard the gardening zone we live in (which is zone 8/9 by the way).
