Learning to garden

We built the beds and filled them with good quality compost a week or so ago.  Ian came for the first planting today!  We put in carrots, bush beans, fennel, peppers, tomatos, lettuces, patty pan squash, and mitha!  Some from seeds, some from starts – so excited!  http://www.portlandediblegardens.com/home

We ended up with so much extra soil that we decided to build one more 4×4 bed, which will go in the front yard beside the taller 4×4 bed..  This one will be shallow and mostly for herbs + maybe onions and garlic..  We really need to plan for what we’re going to do with all of these veggies!!!

Headed out for the Portland Night Market down at Alder and 11th, but were quite surprised by what we found – a looonnngg line!  Yikes!  I thought it was just a street fair – had no idea there would be so many people.  We found a great store with vintage Stickley and mid-century modern furniture.  Then we bugged out and had a wonderful dinner at the SE Wine Collective..  So much for trying something new!  lol!  http://www.legacymodern.com/
