Are there other people in your life who are into gardening? Family? Friends? Co workers?

A post from the community I live in on FB got me thinking about this...

there is a group in the community here called Urban Seeds and they plant community gardens around town, it's pretty cool. My MIL is pretty into gardening too.

The town I live in used to be pretty much orchirds. The property I live on used to be a peach and apricot orchird actually. And we wondered why those trees seem to be doing best. My dh actually got his hands on the old housing lines from a few decades ago from work. It was neat to see thats what used to be here.

Development just recently came to this area. Larger towns are 30 miles in either direction.

At work there are a lot of people into gardening. Several people own a few acres with fruit trees, free range chickens, and vegetable gardens. It is really fun being able to talk about our gardens and even trade food. One guy brings buckets into school sometimes and leaves them in the teachers lounge for us to take stuff. Really fun.

I live on half an acre. The first thing we did in the backyard when we bought the house was plant a row of fruit trees. We were hoping that our neighbors would have the same sentiment but unfortuently my next door neighbor uses his land as a parking lot.

The post on FB was about how people used to come here from out of town and come to the "u pick" farms to get cherries (cherry season here). Makes me wish we had a bigger property so we can have more of an orchird type vibe.

I don't really know hardly anyone that does. My mom has flowers, but no veggies. None of our friends do much with either.

It's surprising that more people don't do it. Espcially when everybody complains about how expensive it is to eat healthy.

A lot of people around maine grow gardens but no one that I personally know. My parents usually grow a garden if they aren't traveling during the summer and my sister plants too in her tiny little yard.
