How does your garden grow?

Something unprecedented happened Saturday.

I found a flier on our front porch and did not immediately throw it away.

It was from Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church and it described plans for a community garden.

If you are interested in finding out about the project, call 747-6806, Ext. 27.

I've always liked the idea of community gardens.

But here's my question. If you are one of those devoting hours of hope and effort to the undertaking, how do you avoid worrying about the possibility that someone will come along and rip off your plants or simply vandalize the whole garden?

As it is a church effort, I suppose one answer might be that you simply need to have a little faith.

That can be a challenge, though, when we all know there are people who are just no damn good.
