Garden 2021

We have been urban gardeners for over a decade!  







  • 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!



  • 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.

New Experiences

  • We grew three different kinds of bell peppers.

  • Gardeners Jerry and James were able to help plant okra for the first time.

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.
