A Truly Lengthy Germination Period
For anyone who has followed this blog from the beginning, you may remember this post from February 2016.
In it, I make mention of my plans to acquire a garden plot as soon as the opportunity presents itself. From that time to this, I didn't hear a whisper but, when it comes to things of this nature, I am a patient being. I recently reached out to the director of the community garden and left a voicemail, asking where I might be on the list at this point.
Several days later, I got a reply. Patience is a virtue.
So, there I am in my kitchen, making a carrot cake from scratch when the call comes in. Thinking at first that it was a Robocall, I barely glanced up at my phone and was shocked to see the name I'd been longing to see emblazoned across my phone's screen. Finally, the call that I'd been waiting for. With alacrity, I seized the device and tapped the screen to answer.
After an exchanging of pleasantries and an apology from her for the long wait, she got down to business and informed me that they were preparing the site for growing this year. She explained that last year's garden didn't do so well due to the All-Encompassing-Almighty-Deluge we experienced in the form of rain. For an idea of the amount of rain that this area got, look up Ellicott City or Baltimore and Flooding.
So, I was asked to prepare for another call within the next few weeks. I'm guessing that's when I sign papers and get the key to the garden gate. I hope anyway. For all I know, I might have to write a two hundred page thesis on the intricacies of horticultural development in human civilization over the past fifteen thousand years before I'm approved.
