Cultivating More than a Garden

Looking back at some memorable gardens, this one was given to me by a lady who couldn't finish it because of health problems. This was my first garden in CA--located in a dirt parking lot behind the dumpster. I hauled seaweed up from the beach--rinsed it and mixed it in with the soil, which was like clay. I was 25 and pregnant with my first child...Wow seems like ages ago!

Don't ask me what I'm doing, being my own scarecrow I guess--trying to coax that garden to grow!! If I remember correctly it didn't produce much, but...

We did! Our first born--those days were magic!
