I found out last week that I got a garden plot through Project Grow. I had been on the waitlist but someone at the Hunt Park site decided to split his full lot and give me half. The plot is 12.5′ x 30′ or 375 sq.ft. which should give us plenty of space to plant our tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, lettuce, carrots, onions, and a little area for herbs. The plan is to then plant and share the cucumbers, zucchini, squash, and pumpkins at Karen’s.

Here are some pictures of the Hunt Park site, and some updated pictures of the seedlings.

Interesting article

Well it has been a few day since I last posted on the blog, but I read a very interesting article today about how Monsanto is trying discredit people like myself who grow heirloom tomatoes. Here is the article: http://civileats.com/2009/04/30/you-say-tomato-i-say-monsanto/.

Right now Monsanto controls about 85% of the US Tomato market and now they are coming after backyard gardners. This company must be stopped, the article points out that Monsanto is “the company that brought us PCBs, Agent Orange, rBGH, and even tried to patent the pig“.

If you have not done so already, please go to this site:http://www.organicconsumers.org/monlink.cfm and fill out the Millions Against Monsanto petition.
