Sharecropping, anyone?

This was news to me but I suspect the idea has been around. A Master Gardener friend explained how her own garden does not have enough sun for vegetables. Solution: she found a friend with a sunny garden area, a friend who didn't want to create a vegetable garden, but who was happy to give up some space. Bottom line: both got to harvest the vegetables. Yours, mine, ours!

Fun Compost Cups

Here's a recipe for "compost cups" - a fun way to teach about the layers in a compost pile.
Thanks to Alexis, Dana and Stephanie, our MG interns.
