First Give-Away

This morning Noah and I were over at the garden taking photos, when a dad and his two daughters, Hannah and Julia, walked up and told me how much they enjoyed the garden. They've been closely watching the progress of the plants (and the dad said he's going to try to get the girls to join him in a little weeding). I told them a bit about what we're growing and hunted around under the leaves for a cucumber. I found a pretty good-sized one and gave it to them. They were delighted, and I was glad to find something readily available to share.

The whole fence row is full of blossoms, and we'll have plenty for passersby.


  1. Hey all! I lived at Longwood & St. Paul for years (and over by the pond before that) and as soon as I saw the pictures, I had a feeling this was over by the Brookline Village T stop.

    I'm in Virginia now, where sustainability, buying local, and "slow food" are huge, so your urban garden project is fun to see! Congratulations!

  2. Thanks for the comment, Jeannine. Virginia has such a nice long growing season--you've got some great farms down there. (Including Joel Salatin, my hero.)
