    I hope it goes well- strawberries are YUM!

    i love gardening and i have 2 projects for the summer and the fall which is a) i would really like to get a good outdoor flower garden started, thinking a mix of African wild flowers or something like that and b) i want to rebuild the bonsai forest that i had several years ago before my former roommates cats destroyed/ate them all - have also considered getting into chili peppers

    A very cat-safe option.

    After getting sick of dealing with drought conditions and water restrictions in my region, I ripped out my entire front and back yard, killed my lawn including the areas where I used to garden, and did 'water wise' landscaping instead. I'm SO glad I did it - I find it so much more beautiful than boring lawns; it's been glorious with color and texture in every season and I planted to attract pollinators so have been enjoying my bee, butterfly and moth friends.

    I still do some container gardening on my back deck, though - and have strawberries, summer squash, lettuce, arugula, cherry and roma tomatoes, and a dwarf peach tree. I won't lie - I have been enjoying having a smaller 'garden' to deal with and find container gardening simpler overall in a lot of ways.

    Sounds to me like you made all the right changes. Way to go!
