KinderGARDENS C is for Community Gardens

Our church Prairie Lakes asked permission to use some land to make a garden for the House of Hope, Boys and Girls Club and other places that serve people in Waterloo.

Tomatoes, onions, peppers and beans are planted and growing well there.

There are 7 beds and 2 were empty on Monday. Lilly and I headed out with my bag of seeds and a mission - Squash!

We raked the weeds out of one bed, made lines to plant our mounts and did some planting. Cantaloupe, yellow and green squash, cucumbers, and butternut squash are what we put in the ground.

We came back Tuesday and the other plot was planted - I just wish I knew what it was.

Lilly could handle one bed and then needed to go to bed.
