Something I learned last season is that a city garden designed for food production is pretty boring. We thought we wanted to plant a lot of a few things because it would allow us to put the excess by and eat from the garden through the winter. In some ways our strategy was a success, but without the variety to go along with it, we find ourselves wanting more of what we don't have.
We're putting together our seed order and the list is pretty long. Granted, there will be far more seeds than what could ever fit in our garden; but thankfully I'll be able to donate some to my school's community garden. To satisfy the volume lost, Meg has already set us up with a CSA that runs for a good portion of the year—and they also have eggs.
The garden will look different and hopefully it will invigorate our growing and eating inventiveness.
