Move Made - I'm On The Waitlist For A Plot




Category: Outdoor Gardening | Posted: Fri Feb 26, 2016 6:33 pm

One day, in the not too distant future, I hope to get a phone call or a letter in the mail stating that I now have the opportunity to get a garden plot at my local Community Garden.


I made the call today and got put on the waitlist. Priority goes to Senior Citizens, and rightly so, before going down the list of people who've been waiting a long time to get a plot. Then, comes me. I'm so excited!!!!!!


I have a small listing of supplies I might need on my wishlist waiting for me to buy them. I need new hand tools as mine are old and rusted. I also, probably, need a spade. I was considering getting a short handled one.


Then, I have to get seeds and plants. Holy Molybdenum, I'm finally getting an outdoor garden!!!!!!!!


In other exciting news, I'm getting the Aerogarden Bounty today!!!!!!

My friend is buying my Ultra LED and the payment from that is partially financing the purchase of the newer Aerogarden, which I'm now calling the Aerogarden of Serendipity.


Right now, I'm ripening the last of the tomatoes on the plants in the Ultra LED. Hopefully, they'll ripen a little more quickly. I'm trying to keep the temperature at optimum levels for tomato ripening but it is Winter here and still very chilly outside.


That's about it, apart from my crocheting a cardigan for the Maternal Parental and a Boba Fett figurine for my friend.


Have a fantastic day, All!!!!! :)

Hope your wait isn't too long! What a dream come true when the day arrives.

Hi @Frank, thanks for commenting.


The waiting list is a year or more and Senior Citizens and the Disabled have first refusal. Then, they go through the people who are neither to determine who gets the plots. I'm hoping for a lot of retirements/refusals.

That's shorter that I thought :) Good luck!
