We tend to have more toads than frogs in our yard, but my son loves them just the same!
What is your favorite color?
I'd have to go with orange. I love fall colors.
What is your least favorite house chore?
Ummm...everything? I do not like cleaning at all. My mom frequently wonders where I came from since she comes from a family of neat freaks. You could eat off her floor. I'd have to say, though, that I don't mind laundry - especially when it's warm and I can hang clothes outside.
Do you keep a garden? If so, what is in it?
Yes! I have a lot of flowers in my yard - rose bushes, hydrangeas, lilies, daffodils, fall sedum, bee balm, dahlias, tulips, asters, columbine, foxglove, hostas, peony, phlox, shasta daisies, etc.
As for vegetables and fruits, I made some gigantic raised garden beds (not on soil, they are self contained) to have more gardening space. I've started my seeds indoors already and I have 5 varieties of heirloom tomatoes growing, red peppers, habaneros, goat peppers, leeks, onions, cauliflower and broccoli. In April or so, I'll plant carrots, beets, peas, green beans, lettuce, kohlrabi, cucumbers and potatoes on top of what I have growing indoors. I might also plant some some squash and/or watermelon depending on how much space I have.
I currently have 4 blueberry bushes, 2 golden raspberry bushes, a blackberry bush, 3 grapevines, 2 apple trees and a strawberry patch. I'm getting a cherry tree, a rhubarb plant and a gooseberry bush this spring to add to my fruit.
I love urban farming, but I really wish I had more space to grow all of the food I want. :)
