My boy has always loved gardening. And I do not posses the gardening gene. My dad is a fabulous gardener, and he really tried to get me involved as a kid, but it didn't stick. I can never remember to take care of plants. I am one of those people who wants all of the benefits of garden fresh food without any of the work required to get it. We have tried dockside gardening and the results have been slim at best. A few hearty tomato crops, some scrawny cucumbers, a lovely season of basil. That's about it.

So this year we decided to try something different. Zach and Naia started some seeds aboard in early spring as always (we found out later that jars were a bad choice for starting seeds. Lesson learned.), and then we rented a garden plot at the Fairy Forest that is all ours for the planting.

Of course we have no idea how/ when/ where to plant anything. But we just made it up as we went along. Some of our own sprouted green things and some picked from the farm nursery.
Random little holes were dug, wee little green things were inserted into said holes, and then we patted them down with warm earth and high hopes.

Maybe, just maybe in a few weeks or months something edible may spring from this little plot of ours.
