now that Christmas is over, its gardening thyme (haha)!

For the past few years, we have cultivated a small backyard garden. Although it usually becomes a jungle by mid-July, we have steadily honed our gardening techniques. One of the greatest lessons we have learned is that gardening is a year round process that includes soil preparation, seed selection, planting, transplanting, dog-proofing, staking, trimming, weeding, watering, fertilizing, harvesting, freezing, canning, and finally, eating! In anticipation of the last frost of 2009 (usually April 15th in Tulsa, OK), we are going to chronicle our efforts from seed to table in this blog.
