I always had lots of houseplants, cherry tomatoes and herbs before I bought a house. They did better before I got cats! But I will grow some things in pots, and if I'm really lucky, I'll only have to wait one year for a community garden plot. We shall see.

I once had an apartment with no land access whatever but I got great sun through my bedroom window. Mostly I grew ivy, etc., for greenery but now I would put some open shelving there and at least grow wonderful herbs to make my meals more tasty. Patio-type tomatoes would probably work as well. Don't give up! There are lots of gardens in Manhattan, on roofs and in windows.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I love that idea, but in a place where people are renting ROOMS in their apartments for $7000 a month, I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get my hands on a piece of land...

It sounds like you need to get involved in getting a new community garden started. Maybe that way you could be at the top of the list.

There are a bunch of community gardens and I have been actively exploring them on my past two visits and am already on the waiting list for a plot at one of them (it's a two year waiting list, though...)

Do they have gardening coops or something to join if you don't have your own space?

Grateful for the warm wishes. I am definitely looking for an apartment with roof access or a terrace or a courtyard...

Sorry you are losing your garden but that doesn't mean you have to leave the team. You have been an active and interesting member of this team for a long time. Besides, maybe you can find a way to start an organic roof top garden!

So sorry that you are losing your garden. Maybe you will still be able to grow some things in containers in your new apartment.

Well, my beloved garden (jungle) of the past ten years is all torn out and I'll be seeding grass this weekend in preparation for selling the house. Seems a little tragic, both as a land use issue and for my own personal joy and fulfillment. I'll live vicariously through you all for a little while longer...

Looking forward to moving to Manhattan, but I'll miss my patch of dirt and my darker night skies.
