Well it has been a while since I last wrote and I hope you, your family and your gardens are doing well.
In May, Katy and I were blessed with visits from all three of our children and their partners. Each pair stayed for a little over a week and we had lovely weekend overlaps. I am pleased to say the garden kept up with the crowd and fed us greens and radishes all month.
Yesterday I put carrot seeds in the ground and I am hoping to see them up and in about ten days or two weeks. I planted them with rows of radishes in between as my mother advised me to do in my childhood gardening days.
It is not too late to plant post-frost carrots and I still have seeds to send out if you are interested and I would love to get closer to the goal of sending out seeds to 80 folks. Here is the form if you want to order the seeds.
I am an avid gardener, husband, father of three grown children and grandfather to two. Those children try to get home as often as they can to eat the food from the garden, especially in tomato season and I look forward to gardening with the grandchildren. I am also a former elementary school principal and teacher, who began gardening with students in 1996 and has been ceremoniously eating carrots with students for over twenty years. I believe that the goal of the gardener/farmer is to build the soil. It is my hope that Carrot Day Massachusetts will build the soil of our community by giving folks the experience of a really good carrot. When a person has eaten a really good carrot, they might be on a path of growing more food and loving to eat vegetables.
