I'm trying to grow some veggies and flowers in my yard...not much luck so far, they keep getting dug up and eaten by squirrels. I live really close to Mitchell Park, which right now is full of trash and pretty unsightly, so I think I'll concentrate on that for now.
There is a building in the park that claims to have a community garden, but all I can see is some crappy sad-looking rhubarb. It could definitely use some fixing up, and some variety. Sadly I don't think many people in this neighborhood will appreciate the effort, they all seem to flock to pick n save for frozen pizza and jugs of high fructose corn syrup "orange drink", and very little produce. But if nothing else, I'll grow some zucchini or something there for my veg-loving family!
