Default Progress on my grow a garden for the hungry project

Our donation garden to grow organic veggies for the local soup kitchens is offically off the ground. Or maybe that's in the ground.

I was able to work it up enough to plant 3 rows although the ground was still a little chunkier than I would have liked. I did find out that "we'll have a couple of rows ready for you to plant this weekend" means we'll have room for you to build 3 rows by hand. Note to self: work on getting strong guy-type volunteers for this weekend.

Planted a row of zuchinni, 2 double rows of bush snap beans and interplanted a few tomato plants. Used vermicompost in the planting holes. We're off and running!

Guys, I think I mentioned this before. This is a national level program.

Grow a Row is a great program and is very easy to get involved in and support.
