jon's garden



My brother has moved out of our home and is now renting half of a duplex several blocks away. Of course after moving in the next logical step was to create a garden space. Here are the before pictures. Perhaps I'll post a story over at Groovy Green about how this space turns out by season's end. The idea is to see how successful a renter can be at growing food in a somewhat temporary living situation. This is garden space number four now under our combined cultivation in the neighborhood.
