Nice and Neat and Ready for the 2013 Season
Many thanks to Georgia Townsend who made this series possible, taking pictures and reporting on the session's activities.  Plans underway to expand part of the garden to include some perennial vegetables, perhaps some small fruit crops - brambles and strawberries and add an overwintering section for early spring harvest.  Congratulations Victory Garden Team for a very successful season!
