As a voice from the garden, I act like a little shadow watching, listening and learning. I follow the instruction of my knowledgeable co-worker Chris. Chris is one of those “seize the day” type characters. Today, we re-built a fence, aerated all the garden beds, transplanted and planted crops, created a new flower bed and prepared beds to be planted with squash. I did now realize how much room squash needs to grow. I am very happy with all the work we did and it provides inspiration for what I can accomplish in my own garden. Everyday I learn new tips and tricks.
My time in the garden has been a continuous learning experience. For now, I am content working in the LCRC gardens and sharing a garden with a friend as I continue to learn the lessons of the (green thumb) trade. If all things go well, maybe I’ll start my own garden next year.
