We’ve moved back to Pasadena! We have a back yard! We have room for a composter
When I was little — early elementary school age — we grew marigolds in our yard. When the flowers shriveled up, my mom and I picked them off the plants, and she set me at the kitchen table to pull the seeds out of the flower heads and put them on a piece of paper. They came out easily, and I liked how it felt. I liked seeing them slip out together. When we were done, we put them in envelopes for next year. It’s one of my first memories of understanding seeds and gardening. Not just having the technical knowledge, but feeling how things worked.
Walkway leading to the Happy Trails Catering garden in Pasadena.
I saw all these overflowing flowers in pots lining this walkway a few weeks ago and wanted to try it — on a smaller scale at first — on our balcony at home.
