... to start gardening!
So our little town has started this year with community gardens. Now there's apparently been some confusion. I've heard that apparently some people think this means free vegetables for whoever wants 'em. Not so! In this case, it means anyone in the community who hasn't the space for a garden can come reserve a plot & plant what they want & weed & water it, and then eventually harvest it. Most of the other people are older (50+) single ladies, or are in apartments. I have a house (ok, a trailer...) and yard, but the yard isn't very big, and the soil is questionable for planting, as the people who lived here before us had a workshop out in the yard. What this means is that my garden plot is 2x the size of anyone else's, because mostly they are feeding 1 or maybe 2 people, and I have a family of 5. The nice part is that 2 of my friends have plots right next to mine, so we can all be chatty more than we already are, haha.
