Re: Goodbye Garden

Hi Bonnie..
  No, I'm almost certain it's not that.. He just renewed our lease and said
we were top notch tenants and hoped we'd never move. He has a service come
and mow the lawn. My guess is they complained to him-but why I don't know.
The plants are far from the lawn so it doesn't interfere with mowing at all.
I am looking for a community garden, and also going to check out the little
alley again. It's fenced in and I found a treeless side of it that faces
south..I just have to see if it gets enough sun. It'd sure be better than
the trash! My fiance will help..he's been very excited about the plants-this
is his
first ever vegetable garden!
  I dunno if he is a plant hater or just clueless. There are several shrubs
around here, including a hibiscus and a broganvilla (sorry for spelling!)
and he "prunes" them every so often...or rather hacks the living daylights
out of them. Poor things!
