Winter always seems to overstay its welcome, but this year I’ve got a new reason to look forward to spring: after years of apartment living, I recently moved into a small house in Red Hook, Brooklyn, which means, among other things, that I now have my own little yard. There wasn’t much growing when we moved in last December, but I just poked my head outside and noticed a couple of tulips, it looks like, and some kind of thick grass?pushing their heads above ground.
I don’t have much of a green thumb, but I can’t wait to see what else pops up, and do a little planting of my own. I’m going to start small, and practical: raspberries to cover up some of portions of the fence, tomatoes, herbs, maybe a lily or two (I love lilies). Then, if all goes well, I’ll branch out next year into some more adventurous options. We’ll see.
Do you have a garden? What do you grow?
