I just looked at my list of what I've started already and the things I want to start, and I think I should knock down the garage to make room. Eek! Going to work on some square foot gardening principles, companion planting, and succession planting to get it all in there!

Are any of you Chicago gardeners growing grapes? We'd like to give it a try, but space is at a premium and I'm wondering if it is feasible to train them on our back fence or if that is a poor idea?

I forwarded your email onto the PR company. Periodically check your spam folders in case the email goes there. The first email they sent me got sent to my spam folder.

I'll be back when I get a spare moment to read your post on growing from seed.

I meant to leave you a comment yesterday. But you have a press pass waiting for you in room 201 if you want to go to the Chicago Flower & Garden Show. Walk past the entrance to the show all the way to the end of the hall and make a left and you'll see room 201.

Hi Amy, I found your blog through a comment on MrBrown Thumb's blog. It's great to see another Chicago-area blogger! I've added you to the Chicago/Illinois blogroll in my sidebar.

It will be fun to follow your veggie-growing adventures!
