Letters from a Hill Farm
I used to have a huge garden - flowers and vegetables - but now have only room for flowers. I miss my old gardens so much. Dreaming about how and what to plant brought so much joy to my winter months. I will enjoy hearing about yours.
Becca, what flowers do you grow? Annuals, perennials, both? This year we tucked a tomato plant in a flower garden, among daylilies and it did great. And we've had some success with cherry tomatoes and herbs and lettuce in pots.
Nan, are you aware that you can buy heirloom seeds from Thomas Jefferson's gardens on the Monticello web site?
Silphium, thank you for the reminder! Laura Simon talks about this resource in Dear Mr. Jefferson, but I've never looked into it. I will soon. Thanks again so much.
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
