Urban Gardening

One of the good things, in my opinion, about living in the city is that we don't have to spend every weekend doing yard work. I do love having a little yard and I NEED the wide green spaces in the park but I don't enjoy weeding, planting, digging etc.

To make up for our lack of gardening space at home, the boys have been gardening at the Children's Garden at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for 3 years. They really love it and the instructors make it interesting and fun for them. They just finished the Spring gardening class and they were so proud to show me the plots that they each planted. Each class made a salad to share with the parents out of the early crops that they could harvest.

They are excited to garden with Mema this summer too.

And Mema is ready for the little boys and girls to join her in the Mountaintop garden. I planted 80% of it including some pumpkins. In a week or two all will be popping and the season will be upon us. The earth is rich and full of surprises. As for weeding, just mulch and weeding will be no more! City or country, the earth has much to enjoy.
