I am not much of a gardener so everything has to be super low maintenance. I maintain a patch of grass in the front of the house I have a lovely stepable that is trying to take over the lawn and I am trying to encourage it because it stays green almost year round and it doesn't get taller than three inches, so no more mowing.

I have a patch for bulbs in the strip between the sidewalk and the street and it overflows with color from mid-February until mid-May. Right now there are hundreds of daffodils. In a few weeks it will be filled with grape hyacinth. Then Apple-Dorn red tulips and last wave of multicolored, smaller late-blooming tulips. When the spring rains stop, so do the bulbs, and the patch gets a top-coat of bark chips for the summer.

In my back yard, on either side of our ramp from the deck to the bricked patio, I have the flowerboxes Becky dreams of, one for each son. My husband doesn't get out to dabble in them anymore. Because they are off the kitchen, my older son keeps a kitchen garden for all kinds of herbs and salad greens. My younger son has so far focused on whatever flowers have the brightest and longest-lasting blooms.

Most of the backyard has shade and trees and bushes. A brick walk connects the patio in the back to the front street-side walkway. I only garden in the area of the backyard that my husband can see through the window from his bed. The focus is a bird feeder which is a favorite for songbirds. There are lots of ferns and Oregon grapes. I plant a few containers with impatience and begonias and fushias with colors that pop out of the shade.

since I live in an apartment, we'd have to grow stuff on the porch.... and right now, that ain't gonna happen 'til I get all the boxes from our move off the porch!

I have plenty of planters, and have tried growing stuff before, but it either got pulled up or had too much sun exposure...

My dream garden would be a square foot garden built high enough so that Tygh could do some of the gardening from his wheelchair.

I'd probably want to try just about any vegetable, but especailly bell peppers, heirloom tomatoes, spaghetti squash, peas.

Okay, so it will be spring here in the North sometime eventually, I know people are probably already thinking about what' they want to grow in their garden this year, so thought that would be a good question to ask.
Or, at the very least, we can talk about what would be in our dream garden...lol...
