Our Garden Journey: Year One [2014]

The year is 2014, we were in the process of dramatically changing our lifestyle. We had changed our habits, our diet, & found our food co-op.. I felt a real sense of urgency to begin growing *some* of my own food, from seed. We were living in Chicago at the time, in a small one bedroom apartment in Avondale. We didn’t have much room for a garden, but we did have a small patio. We were able to fit 20 5-gallon buckets on our patio! On 3/17/14 we started seeds in ziplock baggies & our journey as gardeners began!
