We have a small-ish backyard. It is ok for this area, bigger then most.
In fact, we have a double lot, we have 2 addresses! Of course, all you people from anywhere other then NJ would laugh so hard at the size of our yard. Kansas we are not. Our neighbors are mighty close.
ANYWAY, in our yard we have a raised garden. ( Our oldest son & I already have plans to knock it down this year) It was here when we bought the house. Unfortunately, we have too many trees and nothing grows from lack of sun.
SO, last year I decided we were going to apply for a plot at the local community garden.
We didn't get in last year.
We were down somewhere deep on the waiting list. I called. They told me. I was bummed.
This year, I tried again, and they just called with the good news!! Thankfully I answered the phone, for it is first come first serve. They had called 14 people before calling me and no one answered, so the next person on the list gets a try at the plot.
Regardless of my thoughts on that philosophy, WE HAVE A PLOT!!!
I called John with the good news, using those self same words instead of 'hello'.
He asked me if I was planning on burying him.
He thinks he is a funny guy. :P
So, I am looking forward to enjoying days with my children as we create a vegetable garden, and hopefully, my grandchild and his/her momma will join in on the fun if they come out for the summer!
Now I have to wait for Monday to go to the library and get a load of books out!
