I’m an occasional gardener, living and digging in Brooklyn NY. I revel in it, and it’s making me see the world a little differently. So I’m starting from the ground up, building a community of folks looking for answers or just a little diversion. I’ve been composting and putting stuff in the ground for a few years now and couldn’t have done it any more haphazardly. Given the times we’re living in, I’m starting to approach things a bit more responsibly. Here, I share my experience, ask questions and try to dig up some answers or at least encourage a conversation where the answers sprout up on their own. Give me your dirtiest questions. Anything’s game, from whether it’s ok to pee in my compost to how can I know that’s a potato bug and not a bedbug…what in the heck is a native plant and will I die if I eat it? Do I have to talk to my neighbors? What’s a community of gardeners all about? The answers to this and much more is what I’m about these days.
