Volunteer (vol-un-teer): n. a plant that sprouts from seeds formed the previous year. 

After adjusting to their new home on North Chase Street, Sarah Frierson’s tomato plant volunteers are thriving! Still no ID on the mystery heirloom variety. If you’ve a clue, please submit. And don’t be afraid to bring those brave volunteers to the garden if you find yourself pressed for space. 

I turn my back for one second and they call in the water engineers! Thanks to John and Wray for the brilliant installation and to everyone else for all the moral support they provided. No more water toting from across the street = “YESSS!!!”

Pretty flowers.

A large six foot tall bird from the georgia mountains told me starts from the rooftop of the geography building are ready. Do we want any? Some need to go to Pinewood, some maybe to Willie Mae. Do we have room?

Hello....what an inspiration. Congratulations and I think what you're doing and what you've already done are wonderful! I have some volunteer tomato plants - - would you like some? They are either delicious cherry tomatoes that were extremely productive last year or else an heirloom tomato of a regular size that are pink when ripe. Since they are volunteers, we won't know which one they are until they start to bear fruit. My mom started the heirloom from seed last year, but I didn't get the name of them. Let me know if you are interested and when a good time to drop them off might be. I'm enjoying your website too - very well done.
Sincerely,

Sarah,

We would LOVE to have your volunteers! Whatever type they are, they will be enjoyed nonetheless. We have a master gardener in our midst so maybe she would be able to find the long-lost name of your heirloom. If you would like to come garden with us, we’re in the garden on Sundays from 10am till or you can just plop them on the porch in the white, pillared house across the street and we will get them. Many thanks for your correspondence. Hope to hear from you again.

Regards,
Little Garden

Touring the UGA Bioconversion, Research, and Education Center (BREC) introduced to me the idea that composting can be done on a large scale. Too bad I don’t have a pic of their operation. For now, an old picture of ours will suffice. Since then, us determined little gardeners have moved that unsightly pile of brush in the back and made space for yet another compost heap. We should really make a receptacle to take the neighbors’ food scraps…hmmm, I’ll look into that…

Turns out tires make tenacious potato planters.

The trouble with weather forecasting is that it’s right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.

Tut, tut: it looks like rain

Apparently meteorologist predict that there’s a storm brewin’. If by 12:30 pm it happens to be raining, we will have to take the furlough…

…don’t worry though, ‘cause when we’re working for free, you’re probably not going to miss the money anyhow.
