Soooo, I am a closet gardener (not really) living in a city. We hang out all the time talking, but I don't really know
you. Let's chat!
I'm Heather, I live in a 40' x 120' city lot encroached by lots of shade and a devilish black walnut tree. My grandpa was a farmer, and I grew up with major gardens. I have had huge gardens in recent years past, but have had truoble regulating my city plot. But (
: don't yell at me!) I killed the dogwood in my front lawn and hope to raise some super beds in the next year in my front yard garden.
Hi, my name is Heather, and I'm a Can-a-holic. I love to preserve food and give it away, but I have taken a new stance this year. Less is more, for me. I'm saving more food for me, and giving less as christmas gifts. I have made a serious effort to freeze this year. I'm doing well. Right now I have ratatouille, lentil soup, canned tomatoes, beans, zucchs, etc. chilin' on ice. I also bought a food dehydrator for a super-sweet low budget salvo price of $1.99.
I live in the Bread Basket of Pa (aka York County) and have ample access to cheap (and even sustainable/organic) produce. I prefer local conventional to organic shipped thousands of miles.
My range is mid-atlantic. I think (bad farmer) zone 5? I lurve SESE (southern exposure seed exchange) as my seed supplier.
Who are you?
