Mini Heirloom Veggies
Yikes. This might be a sign of old age:
For years, I've been a perennial purist. If it's growing in my yard it had dang well better be a flower. Practical produce is a job for Farmer John.
Until recently. This spring, I have a burning desire to live off the land. Grow pure and wholesome heirloom veggies! My own personal Garden of Eden, if you will. (Who knows? Come harvest, I might be dancing around out there, naked.)
What's most ridiculous about this is that I don't even like vegetables. Well, that's not completely true. I love potatoes. I'm evolving into a potato! I'm growing rounder and plumper every year.
So, here's my plan: I shall grow them in containers on the deck and bestow this bounty on all my friends.
If they taste like crap I've got that covered, too. I have mean neighbor who deserves a bushel basket of this stuff...
Lots of veggies grow well at high altitudes. Start them indoors 6 weeks prior to planting for best results.
Seeds of Change contributes $$ to advance the cause of sustainable organic agriculture worldwide. I think that's pretty cool...
