How our garden Grows
July 10, 2019
Three years ago, at the walkway on the Southern side of the Community Center, we built with, thick railroad ties, a raised garden.
In the garden, first for all of us to enjoy, we planted Cauliflowers, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Bell Peppers, oregano, rosemary, parsley, and tomatoes.
Guess what… the little tomatoes were the most popular and the other veggies just took up room.
So last year we planted only tomatoes, with rosemary and oregano for company, and many of us enjoyed the tomatoes very much. Just ask Bob and Joyce.
This year again we planted the same types of delicious little tomatoes, with a few new others, and some volunteers from last year. They are ripening while we sit here. Hidden under the tomatoes you can find some basil, chives, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and last year’s oregano. So we ask you to get up and enjoy them. Oops! Not until the meeting is over.
For I have some important vegetable questions for you, asked by many college professors.
- Why don’t the root vegetables take jobs?
The celery is too low.
- What do veggies say on their birthday?
- What does a vegetable in love tell his date?
Let’s not beet around the bush.
- What’s Michelle Obama’s favorite veggie?
And last —
- Why did the tomato blush?
It could see the salad dressing.

I’ve been worrying about the waist-high tomato garden that has gotten so out of control that I feared it might grab someone passing by and drag her inside.
So I got together with Alberto and he got out his clippers and hacked out a cave. The cave is safe.
Now you can reach in easily and pick out our tasty little tomatoes. And a bonus is a bell pepper plant that survived and soon will produce in the sun.
We also still have plenty of oregano and some rosemary and parsley.
So raise your hand if you will stop by and make me feel good.
