So, I thought I had been relegated to the Evanston Community Gardens' waiting list, but yesterday I got an email saying I could get a 400 sq. ft. plot in James Park. Finally!! a place to grow some vegetables! It really doesn't have anything to do with saving money, or even eating home-grown vegetables (well, that's a big part of it) it's more just getting to get out there and grow our own food. To plant and weed and watch. I love looking at a garden I've planted. I can just sit there staring for hours. So anyway, happy day!
