I've located a semi-local plot in the Springfield Township Community Garden and they rent out the units so I signed up last week. Jan, my herb lady, knows the guy running the co-op (Jerry Salisbury) and she was excited that we were trying this out and offered all kinds of advice (plus of course she sells the plants we will use in the garden). So I'm kinda excited about it, but of course it will be a lot of work - and not so close to home. The spots aren't really large, but it should be big enough to produce enough produce for me and Cathy if we can agree on what to plant.
Anyway, all of this flits through my brain as I ponder what all to plant in our garden this summer. I'll try to share some of Grandma Dessie's recipes with you here as well as follow along as our garden grows. I'll be chatting with some of the other gardeners and the folks who are helping us as we go. Jan Becker has promised to continue offering advice which I will try to accurately transcribe. Jerry Salisbury will be around to help with the garden and some other folks we have yet to meet. We'll document as we roll along. Wish us luck and offer up comments if you'd like.
