Growing community

Yesterday I took the kids and stopped by the garden plot. The two things that I miss about not having a yard are play area for the kids and a gardening area. Enter parks and starting last June, the local community garden. What a community builder... I am meeting neighbors that I probably never would have talked to, plus there is something that is just amazing about watching things grow.

Yesterday we mostly just watered and took inventory, that drizzle on Friday just didn't cut it. We're going to be eating a lot of fresh broccoli in the next two weeks, and we should have really good pumpkin pie for Christmas. Beans, chard, herbs, tomatoes, and a nice border of flowers are all doing well.

Hey NC,

It's the El Serino Community garden on Huntington just a couple blocks East of the library.
