Lucky 14

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Plot assignments came today. Right there, sandwiched between Mark and Nancy, sits lucky number 14. My first community garden plot! (If I believed in excessive punctuation this might be an occasion for using it.) True my bit of earth is only 5 x 10, but for six short months it's mine. All mine. Over the weekend I nestled seeds into compostable trays. Carrots, beets, lettuce, basil, tomatoes, and other kernels of hope are now resting happily under our living room windows. Direct garden planting starts next month. I'm so excited for this adventure and hope to share parts of the process along the way. Meanwhile, I'm investigating pick-your-own MO farms so I can stock up on berries and fruit once summer is finally here. And you? What are you looking forward to this summer?
