Inspired by the Woodland Park Zoo

We are going to the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle later this week, and that got me to thinking. When we first moved to Edmonds I had never had a vegetable garden before. The kiddie farm area at the Zoo really inspired me. (See Bruce’s movie here.)   Now, six years later, my family has really copied a lot from what the Zoo’s demo garden has taught us.

We have grapes….

a mini dwarf apple orchard and blueberries…

perennials like asparagus…

sunchokes, rhubarb and artichokes…

a gigantic raspberry patch…

including yellow raspberries…

multiple compost systems…

and the capacity to grow killer green tomatoes.

Now I just need to convince my husband that we should get chickens…
