How Does Your Garden Grow?
My mother’s nickname for me was Mary, Mary Quite Contrary so naturally I prefer to use my middle name, Jo. And at The Glade it’s not my garden but Charlie’s that does the growing.
What are you growing there?
The garden was mostly destroyed by Hurricane Irene last August.
The 15-square garden was demolished by falling oak trees in August, 2011.
Since then Charlie has rebuilt 16 squares using recycled lumber and compost from his compost bins.

Now it looks a lot like a class in the Marx School for the Harp. Trellises are strung to carry beans and cucumbers to altitudes that will necessitate a ladder for picking.

So the potager at The Glade is grrroooooowwing.

And with God’s blessing it will produce an abundant harvest.
What musical instruments do you play?
