Getting the Word Out

Things continue to fall into place.  The seedlings are growing by the day, I'm pretty sure this must be the equivalent of the gangly teenage years.  The garden is getting planned, and the soil about ready to get worked.  If all goes according to plan that should start this weekend, maybe even sooner.

The most exciting thing perhaps was the creation of a beautiful flier which will soon be plastered throughout Sanford's halls (okay, not actually the halls but at least bulletin boards) and the city of Sioux Falls.  If you know of a bulletin board, let me know and we'll add this announcement to it.  It's officially time to get the word out about this project, and hope for a good response.  

Everyone knows, however, that word of mouth is the best advertising.  So if you're reading this tell your friends, neighbors, mailman, or whomever else you encounter about the project.  Ask people if they garden, or if they want to.  Use it as a conversation starter.  Get your gossip on.  

When are things actually going to happen, you wonder?  As mentioned, the plan is for this weekend.  First things first, the land needs to be worked, layout plotted out, and compost applied.  So if you have the urge to do some manual labor and get your hands dirty plan to join in the groundbreaking.  If you've got a truck to haul compost, or gardening tools, you'll be in even higher demand.  

Lots of tomatoes and peppers!
