The boys were extremely antsy and wild the other night when I was trying to make dinner. I knew that my mom had a huge bag of plastic cookie cutters in the cupboard and thought they might keep the boys entertained for a while. I grabbed some colored bowls from the pantry and asked them if the could color sort the cookie cutters. I knew Carter would be a pro at this since his is almost 5, but he really enjoyed teaching Cooper the different colors. Of course things got a little wild at the end, but over all the boys did a great job sharing and I was able to finish making dinner.
My husband noticed there was a community garden less than a mile from where we are staying. I thought I would check it out today. There are no signs explaining the garden and how it works so I went to a local nursery across the street to get some info. They didn’t know a whole lot, but said that you can sign up for a raised bed at the Post office. When I arrived at the garden there was a lady there tending to her plants. I was able to ask her a few questions and get some more information. She said that people can sign up for a raised bed garden and they are responsible for planting, and caring for the plants. The plants are supposed to be organic and no harsh chemicals are to be used, however she said there is no real way to enforce this. Fruits are veggies are only to be taken from your own garden unless permission is given by other gardeners to share. There is also a man that spends a lot of time caring for a lot of the larger crops such as the vineyard and squash. Since there are larger amounts of these he does give permission for the other gardeners to take what they want within reason of course.
