A little bit about the farmers…

I’m a transplant from Brooklyn with big plans of farm livin’ in the city. My boyfriend prefers the computer over the hoe. Our big dog has sampled the Swiss chard (Bright Lights) and found it to be tasty although a little harder to eat than dry dog food.

Last June we found this wonderful garden that came with a 1948 Hyde Park house. The garden had been lovingly planted and cared for (even won some awards from the City of Austin!) by some master gardeners. It is now in my hands and will (hopefully) be making a comeback from its current weed-ridden state. I’ve got big plans, so stay tuned and please offer advice when you can!

    Dear Ellie,
    We look forward to your postings and really like what you’ve posted so far. JUst remember that when you plant a cabbage, you get a cabbage and not a brussel sprout…that’s why I love vegetables, you know what you’re about!

    I think you have planted yourself in a great environment. Love, Mom and Dad

    Saw you on Central Texas Gardener. Do you have the poppy seeds available for sale?

    • Ellie Says:

      Hi, I don’t have any more poppy seeds. Sorry! Hopefully, we’ll be able to to start collecting more seeds around the neighborhood and make them available.

    I watched your program on ctg and interested in obtaining some of the hydepark poppy seeds could you let me know something on where I can get some.

  5. Ellie Says:

    Hi Steven,
    Poppies are in bloom right now and I’ll have seeds soon. I’m just waiting for the seed pods to dry.
