As a boy I was included in the family vegetable garden by default. Something from those Saturday morning weedings must have rubbed off, because when my wife and I bought our first home, one of the first things I did was plant a garden.
Gardening has been with us ever since, though the locations have changed (a bit too frequently). Most recently, we moved to County Wicklow, Ireland and have taken two rented garden plots, known in this part of the world as Allotments.
- Wakarusa, Kansas 2003 – 2004. Wind, bugs, clay, heat!
- Bonners Ferry, Idaho 2005 – 2009. Cold, dry, sand!
- Issaquah, Washington 2009 – 2012. Wet, dry, rocks!
- Wicklow, Ireland 2013 – ?. Wind!
