    Hi Haley! Love your blog–you are definitely inspiring me to investigate urban gardening!

    p.s. Megan – What about Mel Barthlolomew’s “Square Foot Gardening” Books?

      I know! I really need to learn. Daniel actually got all the stuff for it at the store the other day. Being the more adventurous spouse, he’ll probably try it before I do :)
