Hi Pearl,

You have been a bad influence. My nearest neighbors are in the adjoining cemetery,  and they dont have too many needs that I am aware of.  So I have , about a month ago, begun donating excess eggs to an area Not-For-Profit.

Pearl, you're a lean, mean growin' machine!

I respectfully doff my chapeau to the maestro.

This is a  great idea. My grandmother would have loved it as she had a 'tree lawn' in the front yard on a 'busy' street in a small town and a small flower garden in her backyard. Everyone exchanged seeds and starts in the neighborhood.

Everything has been bad here this year, my health, the weather, circumstances, things got planted very late, and I lost large amounts to problems. The Yes, You May strip was just starting to produce, lots of green tomatoes, finally. And this morning I was out starting a vile project, (involving mold and fallen insulation under the house) and saw heavy equipment go by on this little street, then a city truck with guys I know in it. Asked them what was going on "They are putting down new asphalt today! You know that's technically in the city easement, right?" Yeah, I know. I did a solid picking on all the green beans (first pick!) and pulled the cardboard and straw back, weighted it down against the wind. Tied the beans as far back as I could, and wished them well.



The guys who were doing it were nice, and were pretty careful, no damage! Not even much asphalt in places I didn't want it. I put down a new layer of cardboard before I put the old cardboard and straw back, looks good! YAY! That garden survived a hazardous day!!

Congratulations to you, your garden, and the city guys! I think that's a sign that people are respecting our need to grow food a little more.
 
You don't know me, but I've been looking all over the world for. Thanks to the help from this tiny ad:
