Then we went through a spate of winter-related illness and other such things which kept us away from our little 10'x10' veggie farm.
On Wednesday night I received a phone call from Dave, the Community Garden chief, wondering it everything was alright and whether we intended to ever cultivate our land. He also pointed out-- very kindly-- that our plot was overgrown with weeds and that we needed to take care of them post haste! I told him I was 8 months pregnant and THAT played a huge roll in why we hadn't been out there, but I assured him I would come out and get it all taken care of. He had a genuine concern at HOW I was going to clear the land in my delicate state, but I assured him that I could handle it (I have a secret weapon, his name is Diesel).
So this morning the Cluttered Family loaded up into the Cluttered Truck and picked up some organic gardening supplies, some seedlings and seed, and made our way to our plot. A mere 6 hours later, the Cluttered Garden had transformed from THIS:
|This is not our actual plot, but what ours looked like at the outset |
(I forgot to take a before shot)
|Isn't it lovely???|
|The Cluttered boys clearing our plot|
|Sweet Alyssum in memory of my Mom|
