My Community Garden Plot has begun!

My Community Garden plot is finally ready for her little seedlings. I’ve worked the soil, I’ve added organic cow manure. I’ve added organic chicken manure. I even have a lead on organic rabbit manure! I’ve added compost, I’ve shifted the soil to get out anything that’s not organic.  And all this is a raised bed 8×4!  I’ve also been inspired enough to start working my own front yard here @ Mermaid Manor.   I decided I had enough space here and enough sunshine here to add another mini vegetable and herb garden.

I bought my seedlings at a little store in Downtown Savannah that I’m sure has beeen selling plants and seeds for decades.. On the corner of Victory Drive and Bull Street, Tywala and her father have been helping out experenced and new gardeners for a long , long time.  She helped me out tremedously and was as excited as I was about my two new little gardens!

These pictures are of my seedlings as well as the outside of the shop.  I came home on Saturday and planted them right away and fortunately it rained both Saturday and Sunday so my little plants are off to a GREAT start!

The owner of the shop happy to be working with gardeners all day long!

All these little seedlings just waiting for their new homes!

This is the Tybee Life!

This is a picture I took of one of our guests who was staying @ Under the Tybee Sun Cottage. I pulled over my car, jumped out, took my handy Blackberry with a camera and shot this picture!   Living the Tybee Life- even if only for a few days!
