Not Your Garden-Variety Gardener
I decided to tag along and photograph a couple things on the adventures of Elizabeth and her mom shopping for garden plants. We went to Dardano’s Flowerland, Denver’s longest running garden center to pick up what we needed. To say that Elizabeth gets excited about her herb/vegetable/fruit growing is a serious understatement. Elizabeth is able to pack in so many fancy heirloom varieties into the nutrient-rich soil she’s cultivated. Last year we ate very well out of the garden and were still giving bags upon bags of vegetables away to friends and family. This is the ‘year of the balanced garden’, however. Not to say we won’t have an excess, but a more balanced variety of excess– as opposed to the tomatoes we were swimming in last year off our 21 tomato plants! Wow.
