A Garden With My Name On It
Post and photos by the Hawthorne Hawkman.
Anyone glancing at my Twitter feed can tell I'm on vacation this week. And I'm largely taking a break from blogging while I'm away. I sent The Deets an account of hotel toilet paper, but that's been the extent of it. But before I left town, I distributed some trees from the EcoVillage Tree Nursery, and moseyed on over to the community garden by the Bangkok Market. Our partners at EJAM (Environmental Justice Advocates of Minnesota) were kind enough to reserve a plot for me, and thoughtful enough to populate it with hot peppers. They're not the hottest peppers one can find in a seed catalog, but they'll give me a start in learning how to tend these plants.
The peppers also serve as a reminder that even when one takes time to rest, the seeds we plant in our community continue to grow.
