It really is a leap of faith honestly when you tackle a project of this size with all eyes on you.
See that green doorway? We had to come up with a plan in order to close it in as it was on the checklist from the $600,000.00 library edition.
So our group “Friends of the Library” held a fundraiser to brick it in, as well as make a patio out front with a garden pathway, made up from the left over bricks. To be on the wall you had to donate $100.00 and for our front area $50.00 per brick.
The doorway was finally completed.
Potentially more bricks could be sold and they would cut out the blank ones or maybe engrave them right in place. The Friends group is always making donations to the library so they can offer even more, when some think a library is obsolete.
We are now picking Tomatoes, Peppers, Mixed Greens, Herbs, Squash and Eggplant
Corn is ready and Brussels Sprouts will be the last standing and yummy after a frost.
I am not sure what our gardens will be replaced with next year but from where I stand we, Teresa and I, showed what hard work and determination could bring to a community all the while tending to our huge gardens at our own homes but we are tired ha ha.
Have a great weekend we have 2 to 3 inches of rain arriving in moments then a hurricane on our doorstep oh joy.
