I managed to spy Organic Vegetable Gardening by Annette McFarlane on the library shelves as I was chasing Little F through the place and added it to the books I was getting out.
It was a lucky find, I’m enjoying flicking through it. It has section on beginning gardening, plants for small spaces, what plants do best on pots (if you have a small courtyard or balcony) and lists out detailed interesting information on plants. I’m reading up on the moment on the plants that I have growing and actually learning things, which is nice. The book explains information in a way that makes sense to me and is enjoyable to read.
As usual when I flick through seed catalogue or gardening books, I’m convinced that my garden is too small and thinking of ways to expand. Herb garden in place of a patch of weedy lawn? Fruit trees in the front yard? Fruit trees around future cubby house plot? Move to acreage and have a giant garden (most appealing, not financially viable)?
So instead I’m back to flicking through a gardening book and dreaming.
