Container Gardening

Tris and I worked hard on Saturday afternoon to plant 12 tomato plants, 6 cabbage, 6 Brussel sprouts, 11 pea plants, several potato plants, and 1 blueberry bush. We researched how to grow in Flagstaff, consulted books and got dirty. I am expecting a lovely bounty come May or June on the cold weather plants and late July on the tomatoes. I have no idea about the blueberries. I'm guessing not this year. We used any container we could find, including an old sled for the shallow rooted lettuce.

We are staring to think about chickens again. And I am secretly hoping to figure out vermaculture this summer. Also in the works are thoughts about a greenhouse and raised bed garden. The Two Queer Hippies are back!
