Do you grow your own?
July 21, 2008
The big question: how ultra-locavore are you?
The Living Smallers don’t have room for a garden. Moreover, we don’t have enough sun to support one (a plus, in a way, ’cause the teeny house stays quite cool thanks to all the shade). We’ve tried some potted gardens, but those typically fail due to the lack-of-sun thing, too.
Are we alone? Do you have space to grow your own? (If so, do you live in Seattle? Can I buy your produce?)
We’re farmers market frequenters, but even those heads of lettuce and bunches of radishes truck in from at least 30 miles away, meaning oil expenditure. Any ideas for how we can get in on the growing here in the city? The P-Patch isn’t taking new residents, I should mention. What else? Pointers on container gardens? Foraging techniques? Let ‘er rip, and thanks.
