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":
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
red leaf lettuce
tomato plants (3 varieties; 2 plum, 1 pirifoam, 1 goliath)
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!
