I’ve moved from chilly zone 3b to temperate zone 8! That’s right. EIGHT. I’m so giddy I don’t know what to do with myself! According to this neat little table that I found, I’ve nearly doubled the length of my growing season!
Unfortunately I had to abandon my community garden plot in Minnesota around the end of our growing season. I got some of the harvest in time, but the rest was left to my roommate. Here are a few pics from my garden a few weeks before I left:
I planted sunflowers from seed 🙂
This was also the first year ever that I’ve successfully grown cucumbers!
Although I miss my Minnesota garden terribly, I’m very excited to start a new garden here in Oregon. I’m really happy that I’ll have much more time to spend on something that I love so much.
So far, I’ve only got the plants on my patio. I’ve purchased one new plant since being here, which is a fun new succulent. It’s the best looking one in this pic, the others are still looking a bit haggard from the 30 hour drive.
I also have a nice new camera, so I will be posting more photos of the area soon. I’ll even be able to go outside in January to take pictures, because it won’t be -30 degrees outside! 🙂

One thought on “I’ve Transplanted Myself to Portland, Oregon!”
I live in N. Minnesota too — Bemidji area. I bet you don’t miss the weather here. I bet Oregon feels like a nice change. Good luck in your new home.
