A truck, a dog, a house on a hill and an improbable garden, half of which grows on a recycled shuffleboard court in straw bales and containers. Marideth Sisco is a retired journalist, author, folksinger, folklorist and Ozarks storyteller. She is the host of the regional public radio series of audio essays, “These Ozarks Hills,” available on line at http://www.ksmu.org. She is also a veteran gardener, and can get quite cranky about it at times, even when things are going well. However they’re going, she will practice moderation, patience and creative improvisation – all good for the soul. But she doesn’t have to be nice about it.
Yes, it’s another damned little gardening blog where I plan to talk you to death about my little patch, not of earth, but of pots, haybales and a recycled shuffleboard court that is currently growing 3 kinds of beans, 8 kinds of tomatoes, chard, mizuna, cucumbers, peppers and an eggplant. Sure you don’t want to stick around? Well, stop by later and I’ll show you the family photo album.
