Two stories in the Compass about gardens in Bay View

The current issue of the fine local newspaper The Bay View Compass (which I write for) has two three stories about gardening in Bay View. The feature is about the rooftop garden at Future Green, which features a solar-powered automatic watering system. They also used some of my photos from the May 23 garden installation at our house, and mention that a rain garden will be installed at Humboldt Park Elementary School. You’d think that I would have paid more attention to that, as I told my editor that I noticed they’d torn out a lot of the pavement surrounding that school. Having moved and written a senior thesis and then done a huge amount of other stuff in the same short time frame, you’ll forgive me if I miss a bit, Jay.….

It must be noted that after the five raised beds were built that day (the 23rd), Stacie took it upon herself to build another raised bed and a circular herb garden in the front yard, all of which are in pictures elsewhere on this blog.
