A new home, a new home garden

Some very good news: I will no longer have upstairs neighbors! They’re good people, but it’ll be nice not to have people coming in and out all hours of night and day.

The other good news: along with the new digs, we will have a huge garden! By city standards, having almost 1,000 square feet as a garden is huge. But such things are possible on the south side, and that’s exactly what we’ve got now.

Which leads me to my question… what should we call it? I’ve a few ideas, but you can add yours, too:

Second, because it’s going to be such a big space, I’m looking for some suckers GOOD PEOPLE, possibly you, who would be willing to lend some assistance in setting up and tending the beds. Plus, you’re entitled to plant and grow your own crops, and, naturally, take it harvest home with you when.

And if you’re interested in helping set up the yard-farm and grow some food, drop me a line: my email is haazah –> @ <– gmail.com. If you can figure out how to turn that into a usable email address (and not spam me), you’re a good candidate for the garden.
