Meini, Petra, Sandra, Mike and I have made progress in the garden, since June, when we inherited it from a neighbor. (Our garden is not a Schrebergarten or Allotment Garden as some may think.) Today, August 25, 2012, we planted the first seeds in two beds. It is late in the season but we wanted to try it anyway. We planted 2 rows of green lettuce, 2 of radishes, and 2.5 of red cabbagey lettuce. All of them can yield in 3-4 weeks. We also planted 2 rows of onion bulbs, but those are meant to be for next season. I am learning new things because my past gardening experience is tropical-based. My two teachers: my Father (que en paz descanse) and Armando would be proud.
