This was our 9th year as urban gardeners.
Gardener Shicole was featured in The Phoenix Soul.
Our herbs did exceptionally well; we had to give a lot away.
We had a mild fall which allowed us to harvest from our garden for Thanksgiving dinner.
We learned how to make chive blossom vinegar.
We made ketchup for the first time using tomatoes from our garden
My fellow gardener, friend, and great uncle Lindbergh Guyse passed away.
From Our Boys
Jerry - I like our garden a lot. I like that we grow food that is good to eat. My favorite thing to eat from the garden is mint.
James - I like the plants we grow. We save money because we grow our food. My favorite things to eat from our garden are the greens and the strawberries.
