I had a nice visit with my neighbor Rita yesterday. Rita and I are going to do a true community garden at her place. She has a huge backyard garden that was her husband's passion. He passed away three years ago and she would love to see things growing there again. I would like to garden more but haven't the space or sunshine here for a good vegetable plot, so we're going to garden at Rita's this summer. We want to plant more tomatoes and cucumbers for salsa/sauce and pickles respectively. Rita would like some beets for pickling as well. Add to that some carrots - she shared pictures of amazing carrots that her husband Joe used to grow - and some potatoes and onions, and we've got the start of a nice vegetable garden! Sugar snap peas, bush beans, some herbs, getting spring fever just thinking about it!
