Why I'm Getting Dirty:  I don't remember not getting dirty. when I wasn't a homeowner I found vacant lots still do but I leave it for others. I use what space I have and if there is extra it goes to the food bank. We are lucky where we are as our home is on the corner 3 of the 4 house grow there own , we share and help one another. my partner makes sipping vinegar, drinking vinegar,shrubs,switchel the fruit and herbs for her products comes from local farms -check out ( sageandseafarms.com)

    That's great that you donate to the food bank! I know they have a shortage of fresh foods. Voted!

    I love your picture! And I love that it sounds like you have a little urban farming community. People crave community, and it's one of those things that's hard to find in our modern world. Cherish it.
