We have been urban gardeners for over a decade!

Successes

  • Despite the ongoing pandemic, we were able to expand the garden.

  • We were able to give food to our close relatives safely during the pandemic. 

  • Gardeners Jerry and James planted plants, watered plants, and harvested independently of Gardener Shicole!

 

Struggles

  • The sage plant died.

  • Only a few kale plants grew well. The other plants either died or were stunted in growth.

  • Starting an education consulting business took me away from my garden more than I wanted.

From Our Boys

 

  • Jerry - I learned how to grow okra and sorrell. 

 

  • James - My favorite part was watching the food grow and eating it afterwards.
