Community Organic Gardening!

My friend and neighbor, Leah, (you might remember her from here) and I are doing a garden at a local park in Lakewood through "LEAF":
http://www.leafcommunity.org/

it's great - all organic!!
we got a 10x10 plot through the whole season (and we can get the same plot next year too) for $25.00 - they water (ok - the water fountain/hose system hasn't been set up yet so...) but heck!

we started about two weeks ago, and we planted:
thyme, sage, basil, parsely, cilantro
romaine lettuce
red leaf lettuce
onions/scallions
cucumbers
white cauliflower
purple cauliflower
tomato plants (3 varieties; 2 plum, 1 pirifoam, 1 goliath)
bell peppers
jalapenos
serrano peppers

we're so excited!
talk about the best salsa and tomato sauces this fall!

it was so fun to measure and stake it out and turn dirt!
i have wanted a garden for so long!

it's our first year so we're kind of going light - we may get all crazy and do two plots next year!
it's literally a 5 min walk from our apartment and I just found us a wagon (on Freecycle) so we can walk our water over instead of driving - until they get us our water supply

we've met some really nice people
hooray for gardens!

Hi Kimberly and Leah! I read Leah's posts all the time and find them to some of the best ones on the internet!

I'd like to provide you with some information regarding your organic garden. I've been researching prostate issues and have come to the conclusion that proper nutrition is how we not only prevent the onset of any cancer, it is how we halt and reverse cancerous tumors.

One such way is through a 100% organic, natural remineralization/fertilizer for our gardens and food supplies.

If you are interested, please email me back. I'd like to donate enough solution for you to grow your garden in what is truly how nature intended.

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you soon.
