Thank you, everyone, for your kind comments, emails, and Facebook notes about our one-year anniversary. We’re going for two!
I’ve had a lot of fun reading your comments lately. Red Icculus, love the different perspective you bring here. Deb G, Risa B, and Katecontinued, I love the kindness you bring. And all of your gardens! Ian, and any of you – please feel free to start any challenge at any time. You don’t need a blog, you don’t need to do it all at once either – just work toward it. And if any of you would like to add an extra bit of spice to your personal challenge (Ruchi) please do – by all means! Challenges are a way to push us all a bit harder, and put a little fun into it on the way. Augment as you will!
And last, I want to give Melanie and Tricia virtual hugs – both have had terrible gardening woes. If anyone has any advice for them, I’m sure they would be all ears. Tricia has found lead contamination and Melanie has found low light and mysterious critters…!
Well, last time I went out of town for pleasure. This time I’m going out of town for work. I’ll be working all weekend long, so I may be able to check into the blog occasionally to read your comments, but I won’t have time to post.
So… let’s converse again! It was interesting for me last time, but let’s pick it up a bit. Any questions or thoughts you have are fair game (as long as they are constructive and respectful of course!). Here are some conversation starters…
Last week there were a few unanswered questions:
1. Has anyone had good experience growing peanuts or grains at a backyard level? (This is a combined question from Deb G and Maureen.)
2. How do you keep people focused and communicating when you are community building? Can anyone share some things they’ve tried?
3. Check out this crazy worm I found in the garden! How long do you think it is? (Hint: I do not have baby-sized hands. Click the image to enlarge it.) And here’s a harder question: how old do you think it is?
Thanks for participating – I look forward to learning from you all!
