Hi, my name is Derek Freiman and I am a gardening consultant living in Bellingham, Washington. I live a simple life with little overhead and try to be in tune with nature. Each year, I help Washingtonians dig, plan, and grow wonderful gardens in their yards and lots. If you know someone who wants to eater fresher, healthier food, I can help them create a plan and implement it so you can achieve those goals!
I thought I'd make this post a bit more on the pictorial side of things, while we wait for things to get going here in the Northwest this season.
First of all, I want to remind everyone about the Derek Freiman consulting packages available for the fast approaching 2013 season.
Last year was the first year we grew eggplants at my place. I had to start them indoors using a heating pad in January. Each plant was gorgeous and produced about 20 small eggplants during the course of the season. We harvested from about August to October.
This photo shows how a rose bush was helping to support my peas that were growing up the fence. I thought it was really beautiful to see the two of these plants co-mingling.
These are some great looking basil starts that wound up in one of my many jars of tomato sauce.
If these pics inspire you, get out in the garden and get to work!
