Sign Up to Dig Your Own Garden
The Overnight low is back in the 30’s but it is never too early to plan ahead.
Peterson Garden Project opened up spots in its community gardens project yesterday. One location is already sold out. I’ve gardened with them from the start. I garden there for the sense of community; I get plenty of food for the family from the Earthboxes out back. Still, meeting with my fellow plot sharers to ogle over seed catalogs has been fun.
Then we go out one day to our plots and measure them off and plant. Last year produced lovely squash blossoms that I bet we will want again but our tomatillos produced lovely lanterns but not much fruit. We should try again. But what I’m especially interested in is strawberries. I ordered the seeds after one of my fellow plot sharers gave me a gift certificate to a seed company for my birthday.
So you don’t need a backyard to grow in this city. Isn’t that something special?
