A Reva Garden Update

Reva's Garden 09JunBack when I started this Bumbling Gardener adventure, one of my early posts inspired another fledgling gardener to start her own garden. And I’m happy to report, she’s come along way, baby!

What was once an uninhabitable empty plot full of small stones — even weeds wouldn’t grow there — has become a thriving garden. In the back there are a couple of kinds of corn, onions, lettuce, and spinach, as well as edemame, celery, broccoli, strawberries and an assortment of herbs.

Reva reports that the kids have gotten very engaged in the process, which has been a wonderful and unexpected bonus to the whole adventure.

Frankly, I’m looking forward to a dinner invitation in a few months time…
