July Mid-Month Meanderings: Edible Garden Tour!


I’ve been a bit MIA.

As I’ve said, our garden was on the West Seattle Edible Garden Tour over the weekend. So we had a lot of primping, prepping  and stuff to get done.

It was a fantastic day with so many lovely and interesting visitors. We are guessing that we had between 80-100 visitors. It was really great to share the transformation of the yard and meet some of the readers (hi!).

Did you miss it? I’ll take you on a virtual garden tour (and this months Mid-Month Meanderings). It is pretty amazing to look back at February and see how much has grown!
