We just rototilled a portion of our lawn-yeah! We put a bunch of vegetables in yesterday. This makes so much more sense to me than grass. I'm letting the space around me, work for me. The price of produce these days is outrageous, and growing our own (for the extremely short season we have in Vermont) will make a difference.
We planted little pear trees in the flower garden last year, and they're doing great. One even has a couple of pears on it. They're growing like crazy. We have some other edibles already growing here, including gooseberries, currants, blueberries, chives, and some orange lillies (found out last year you can eat these). And of course, the portion of our lawn that we've been letting go wild is filled with all kinds of wild herbs.
My friend Fern introduced me to wood sorrel a couple days ago. I was amazed at the intense, lemony flavor. This would make a great salad addition. You can read about wood sorrel here.
I'm off to work on a garden of a different kind. Have a terrific day.
