After two weeks of frigid temperatures including a bit of ice and snow, I visited my garden plot at Promise of Peace Community Garden. I was a bit nervous about what I would find. The last time I checked, a few kale and spinach seedlings had barely sprouted. Barely as in I had to dig around in the dirt to find them…
Yay! The pine mulch and freeze guard cover did the trick. Despite unseasonably cold Dallas weather, my seeds were happily growing. Some had grown an inch tall. These are the types of things that make me ecstatic.
For the next ten days with temperatures in the 60s and 70s, things should really start to happen. I plan to plant more seeds this weekend.
Yesterday I met Natalie who was also working on her plot. Take a look at her design. I love the way she is organizing her space.
The first thing I always notice about Promise of Peace is the smell. The air smells green and fresh like spring and life because that’s what’s happening there.
