I'd like to welcome three people to Distributed Gardening project -- my friend Eric (genius chef behind Millennium), neighbor Beth (writer of Fake Plastic Fish), and coworker Jay (storyteller behind the GreenGorilla).
They all have different gardening areas -- Eric has a terraced area behind his apartment building, Beth has a small, bare front yard surrounded by big buhes that looks great for the 'maters (and maybe some arugula, mint and strawbs if she wants to cover the bare dirt), and Jay has raised beds and more limited space.
Chef Eric witnessed the release of some pretty active ladybugs -- there are still a lot of them on the plum tree and they are still all over the tomato plants. Dobson and George helped.
This morning, after I dropped off the tomato seedlings, I got to meet Beth's charming lovelies, Soots & Arya:
As promised, here are some photos of the garden:
The plum tree is casting more shade than I expected over that part of the garden. I still have quite a few seedlings left to distribute to some friends in San Francisco and some "TBD" recipients.
The basil seedlings are doing pretty well - and the pepper sprouts are moving right along. I just have to figure out where I'm going to put all this stuff!
