In the H.O.P.E. Garden, gardeners fill their plots with veggies they choose.
Some gardeners choose to accent their space with personal objects.
This week in the garden, Gardener Mark showed off his woodworking talents and revealed his latest creation. The group was impressed with his attention to detail on this miniature tree stump house. Can you spot what may just be the world’s tiniest garden hose?!
The first week of the H.O.P.E. Garden’s growing season has been grey and wet.
Despite the not-so-nice weather, gardeners scrambled to get seeds in the soil and garden plots are starting to take shape!
“A Gardeners Outlook on Life”
by Laurie Jo DeGrave 2003
Take up the spade with song.
Nurture early on.
Be fervent while you plot.
Chart the spot.
Prune with certainty and care.
Growth stops there.
Patience, patience, time to grow.
Reap what you sow.
Hardly the Garden of Eden?
Thankful for another season.
THANK-YOU to everyone who made that possible!
And let’s try to beet that number this year
