It's been sunny out for, like, two whole days! And warm! So, in the spirit of Spring, I've decided to apply for a community garden plot. If I get the plot I want, it will be just a two minute bike ride from my house and all summer, I can eat fresh veggies!

I haven't decided just what I'm going to plant, though certainly I will have lettuce and tomatoes and peppers. I'd like to grow beans, too...

The plot is only going to be about 350 square feet, but I think it'll be more than enough - especially since I've never done this before and don't really know how it'll work out. It only cost 37$ and two volunteer days, so it won't be a big loss if it doesn't work out.

I love gardening - I worked in greenhouses and for landscaping companies for years. Best jobs I've ever had.

Cool! I love seeing other people getting into gardening. I have so much better an appreciation of the seasons after gardening for 2-3 years.

Check with the others on neighbouring plots, but if you were over here you'd be coming to the end of bean-sowing season. You should be able to find a "grow-your-own" book in the local library.

Or - even better, drop the Shibaguyz a line and say Julia from A Bigger Pot sent you. They have four gardens and grow so much from scratch. I'm sure they'd love nothing more than to point you in the right direction.

Talk to your Aunt Joan. Remember all the veggies she use to plant.
