Food Growing Tips From a Seattle Transplant
Then comes the new soil. He pours lots fresh layer of garden soil, a moist, black earth that introduces a new compost material. For this we thank our local dirt and rock specialist, Burien Bark.
This year, the experiment is to see if rolling hills of dirt, aka berms, will help things grow more efficiently. Will the root vegetables benefit from the deeper soil? Will the big squash leaves fall to the sides of these hills? Stay tuned.
This Year's FoodDeciding what to plant is my department since I'm our family's head chef. The goal is to have food all summer and fall, plus more to freeze. I do a little research on companion planting, which helps you to know what plants do well next which other and what plants to not put side-by-side. Companion plants share nutrients and attract beneficial bugs.
CarrotsThe seeds are there. You're going to have to trust me. Our kids love the carrots best because they're sweet and crunchy like nothing from the store. Plus, like opening a present, you never know what's going to come up when you tug on that carrot top.
Parsley Once known only as garnish, I use it often in smoothies and pesto.
KaleI use if for smoothies and chips all the time. I have yet to "massage it" for a salad, though.

Olbrich's annual Flower Show heralds arrival of spring
Plantenberg said — including a bed frame and headboard, with matching bench, by artisan Jamie Stanek of Black Earth. The bed frame is filled with water that’s colored with beet dye, also used in Olbrich’s outdoor water features, Plantenberg said, to give it a deep, rich color and reflective quality.
The exhibit also includes reclaimed doors and windows hung as art pieces. These were done by Deconstruction Inc., a business on Madison’s Far East Side that salvages and sells materials, much of it vintage items, from building demolitions.
That speaks to another interesting aspect of the show, Plantenberg said, “the juxtaposition of modern and old.” The show also includes unique fixtures from Madison Lighting.

Two friends visiting the Flower Show on Monday, Linda Ludden of Middleton and Connie Williams of Madison, found the space to be a beautiful mix of flowers, art and creativity.
“It’s wonderful for spring planting ideas,” Williams said. “I usually come every year.”
With this year’s exhibit featuring container plantings, it’s perfect for the two women, they agreed, since they each do a lot of container gardening. “Bring your camera,” Ludden said, to take away ideas for planting at home.
There is beauty not just in the flowers, but in the variety of containers themselves, Williams added, not to mention this year’s furniture art: “There’s something for everyone, that’s for sure.”
