|Bless Derek's heart! He volunteered to come over and double dig with Matt. We didn't ask. We weren't even hinting around for help. It was all him. What a great friend.|
|And I am sure that Matt is loving having Derek and his brother, Ryan, to talk to about gardening. To share in his excitement. They each put in a garden space last year.|
|The previous owner left us a wee row of onions...they were about the only part of the garden space that looked anything like a garden, you know, as opposed to a dumping grounds for grass clippings and debris.|
|The bed on the left is peas and the previously mentioned onions. The bed on the right is strawberries and rhubarb. One of these beds is not much smaller than all of our space at the rental. We are delighted!|
We met the next-door neighbors while we were out working in the yard. The tell us the garden used to be a real gem, until the previous owner and that they were really excited that gardener-types had moved into the place. Well, that makes two of us. We're up for the challenge.
