Comments On - Garden Where You Can

There is nothing wrong with horticultural machismo. I say "Go for it!" Any place that can be transformed into productive gardening area is that much area removed from the asphalt, developed, paved and built environment. You can grow a lot of food in a little plot.

Jim, it is so true that we Americans always have an idea of how a garden should look and be worked. Many think that because there's no space for a traditional garden that they can't have one. I've learned over that last couple years that creative spaces can make the best places for small gardens. You are truly fortunate to be living in a place that has grasped ahold of that concept and readily displays it. The midwest, of course, has history, but nothing that goes back as far as where you live. It must be quite enjoyable to contemplate what might have happened on the different properties and roads.

Have a great Italian day in the garden.

When I lived in the Boston area, I saw Italian and Greek women cutting wild greens out of median strips and highway ramp burms. They also planted in tiny side and front yards and came up with amazing winter coats to protect their fig trees.
