Wow, time flies … and it's been awhile since I've posted. I guess I've been taking an unofficial and unscheduled blog-break.
It won't be very long at all and the spring frenzy will be upon me - client projects will be in full swing, and I'll be busy getting the nursery ready to re-open.
But in the meantime, winter is a pretty sleepy time here at Bloomtown. I have a tendency to cozy-up in the studio; work on client projects lined up last fall, do various "housekeeping" types of projects that have built up over the busy season, as well as work on developing new business ideas to explore in the coming year.
I also try to catch up on my reading and catalog perusing. Right now, I am scanning the Territorial Seed Catalog trying to nail down my spring seed order for the vegetable garden. You'll be hearing more about my vegetable gardening efforts this year. For the moment, I'll just say that I am greatly expanding my efforts towards the edibles.
While I'll still have the kitchen garden here at Bloomtown, that I've posted about before, I'm also going to be incorporating more edible plants in my ornamental garden. I've already planted several more blueberry shrubs and added another in-ground columnar apple, to complement those that I have growing in containers in the existing kitchen garden. And finally, this very exciting news; I will be co-gardening with a friend on a new project. We are planning to create a vegetable garden on her front lawn and sharing the bounty between our households. You'll definitely be hearing more on that as things evolve.
