STARgarden Blog Begin!

Well. The first beds are built. The first vegetables grown - AND eaten. 
It is time to start recording what is happening in the STARgarden on a 
regular basis. 

I just added a post on STARworks main blog page. A sort of collage of 
last 7 months of "farm"operating on an old parking lot . To be honest, I did not expect to get so much produce out of such a relatively small plot. I certainly didn't think we'd have enough to sell this first year. But whaddayaknow. Plants grow. And grow more. 

I'll keep posting short notes on STARworks page, but 
wanted to have a separate space for garden only, where I can add more pics and rambling thoughts without boring everyone. SO. If you have more interest in what goes down (literally) in STARgarden, check in here every now and then. 

The latest news is that we have purchased a us
ed greenhouse from Mr. Allen. It looked lonely and in need of someone! It also looked good and sturdy and in good shape with all sorts of bells and whistles, so we decided to stay
 true to one of our visions which is to RECYCLE wherever possible, and bought it used, rather than brand new! 
Yesterday we had great help from Tommy and Johnny, leveling the ground for the greenhouse. 
There is still tons more to do before it can be put up though... plastic to be ordered, watering system figured out and ordered, more beds built, more fall veggies started, flower beds planned and dug for next summer, vermicomposting started... oh, the list keeps growing almost as fast as the plants!
