|Lupine and Poppies for Spring|
Here is SE Portland gardening is an art form. It is the fourth summer of veggie gardening in my fenced off 30'x30' garden plot and something amazing has happened. My dirt has turned to soil, my paths are all broken in and each year I do a little less prep work to get everything going.
|My garden helper is growing too!|
I also came to a realization about my garden. No more growing veggies that don't work for me. I always tried to grow egg plant, broccoli, cabbage and others that I never found much success with. This year I will grow vegetables I like to eat and cook.

I think that's it! And YUM.
