In my excitement for fall, I went out and purchased so many seeds without realizing I had little land left to plant them!

I also wheat pasted this blog’s address on the wall. Has anyone seen it??

Anywho, I’m honored that she considers the garden a “community asset,” and I’m really hoping we can get some of her kiddies involved in the guerrilla gardening experience come autumn.
