For the last several weeks, we’ve been watching our front garden fill up with dandelions and thorny weeds and creeping ivy. In past years, Zach and I have had a blast planting container gardens on our fire escape (and making boatloads of fresh summery pesto), but this project is much more daunting for new gardeners like us. We’re super excited!
Over the next few days, I hope to share our tentative plans for the front garden. Hopefully we’ll be able to upgrade it from an eyesore to a multi-functioning space for our herbs, veggies, and a few flowers to brighten the urban landscape! This weekend, we got a kick start on the herb-and-veggie portion of the plan. Can’t wait for those sweet peas and hot peppers to start blooming!
Now: off to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden for their annual plant sale!
