We got the sign up forms this afternoon for our rooftop pea patch. As it stands, to my knowledge, we are the only unit allowed to have 2. We have 2 different last names, you see, so it’s like one of us (take your pick) is incognito – and also I think they let us have 2 spots because Erik has become the resident water-er and care taker of the neglected and sad plants that a well intention-ed person just sorta lost interest in.
$10 gets you half a metal planter. Once you hand over your completed form and a $10 check (for each half metal planter), them you’re good to go….
Insert a mischievous smile, here.
Erik started planting up there a good 3 weeks ago.
I guess now – well, as soon as I hand over the checks and fill out the forms (that’s my job in the gardening realm. I’m very good at it; along with helping pick out plants, helping water the plants, and of course helping eat any eligible crop – I am especially good at this last part, especially when it comes to cooking!) – then we’ll be legit!
Until then, he’s a rogue gardening. And once we’re legit and we’ve been assigned our customary spots (I think we’ve had the same ones for the last 3 or 4 years), then we can see the spots or technically commercial planters, we can plant in…
