As several of you have posted about planting your gardens this spring, I've left comments expressing my disappointment that with the timing of the move, a garden didn't make much sense for us this year. Well, as I mentioned recently, our new home is just a block away from our current house. The family of my husband's successor was really excited about having a garden for the first time, but they won't arrive until mid-June and even then will have much work to get settled. Eric had a brilliant idea: why don't we plant and tend the garden, using "their" yard, and then we could split the harvest?
All parties were agreeable to this plan, so Eric planted the past two weekends. Here's what we're hoping for in a few weeks and beyond: onions, potatoes, tomatoes, green and red peppers, squash and lettuce. I'm excited for this year's creative co-op arrangement, though we will of course plant in our own yard next spring. Hooray for garden produce!
By the way, please head over and wish Monica a happy birthday!
