It’s planting season at 3675!
With two brand-spanking-new 6′ x 3′ beds and a WHOLE lotta big empty pots as our canvases, Team Temple went a little vegetable crazy this past weekend.
After putzing around the house all day Saturday and getting the yard into tip-top shape, we made an early morning dog park run on Sunday, then hit up our neighborhood seed bank/urban farming storehouse.
Wait – did I mention we stopped for vegan brunch in between? Good God – we’re Portlandia personified.
Anyway, we already knew that. Big deal. So, our veggies!
We’re super excited to be debuting some new ones this year, with our added real estate…
We actually got on a little planting high and decided it would be a great idea to clear out ALL the seeds we’d been saving (lovingly, in paper packets stored in rice inside air-tight jars in our fridge).
Give them all a chance at life. See what takes, and maybe we’ll have SO much luck we’ll be giving away starts to friends?
So we planted them. Little seed babies, tucked all around our kitchen (which, with its high northwest exposure, “hotbox” bay window, and almost constant sunshine, has been perfect for starting tomatoes every year so far).
So there you have it – a glimpse at our 2015 veg lineup (not pictured: sweet peppers, hot peppers, myriad other tomatoes, herbs, yada yada). We expect to be busy bees for the next few months, especially since our flowers are already falling and we have fruit setting on all nine of our trees.
If you’re in the Bay, come by any time and join us!
