About me

In the spring of 2009 I removed the front lawn of our Mercerwood home turned it into a vegetable and flower garden. I started almost everything from seed in pots in my living room. It is still a work in progres.

Current project

I am putting in an asparagus bed, along with rhubarb and blueberry bushes. Of course, all the other usual vegetables will be going in also.

Type of gardener


Favorite garden activity

Welcome to DigtheDirt! I just got three blueberry bushes and I can&#x27;t wait for harvest... Northland, Patriot and Blue Crop. Asparagus, huh? Might have to plants that as well!
