How Does My Garden Grow? Some Patio Porn

Garden time is here in my lovely little spot in Central PA. Although I live in a small city with little land, I do a ton of gardening in pots and containers. This actually helps reduce pests. With the aid of composting worms busily eating all of our veggie scraps and shredded bills, I have some of the best fertilizer in the world.

I am also a big fan of purslane. Lots of people think of this as just a weed, but it is one of the most nutritious foods in the world! I put it in salads, stir fry, soups, and in an Italian twist to the Mexican classic of purslane and eggs. I also have an amazing mint and lavender crop this year. I will have some folks over soon and will make a lavender lemonade and a potato salad with mint and purslane.

Are you a gardener? What do you grow? What would you like to grow? What should I grow?
