Despite the fact that I live two blocks away from the urban garden, I'm still getting the hang of turning on the water supply from the golf course, ducking flying balls and not watering the veg so late that it's dark by the time you put the hose away and lock up.
I love our little patch of heaven but I ain't trying to get caught in a secluded grove of trees off a non-fenced golf course that's in a Chicago public park.
That's a recipe for a really bad time.
In fact, when I was watering last Tuesday about a 1/2 hour before the sun went down I noticed that random men were popping up on the golf course---without golf clubs and on the path surrounding the garden.
Unfortunately my time to water is limited as early in the morning isn't an option while I still have a job.
And no, there's nothing new to report on that front. Once I have news, I'll let you know.
Why do you think I'm trying to grow my own tomatoes, bell peppers and collard greens?
The potential for something very bad to happen back there is a real possibility so I always carry my cell phone and look for other people either jogging or on the golf course. So I try to very much stay aware of my surroundings while indulging my urban gardening steez.
Keep good gardening vibes coming my way. Keep your fingers crossed that a bounty is only a few months away.
