|Girls looking for berries in all the right places|
On my way home, I stopped by the Moravian Church community garden where I used to garden in 2008 (which was the rainiest June in Central Ohio history with over 10 inches of rain). It is right next to the Emerald Fields park where the party was held. It is still there and is surrounded by new apartment buildings. I remembered that it flooded a lot during heavy rains, like the one we were experiencing. I wondered if anyone was losing their crops this month and was very grateful that we have a slight incline to our lot at the SACG to prevent water from pooling in any of our plots. I then went shopping for contender green bean seeds and finally found some at Strader’s Garden Center on Riverside Drive. While there, I founds some very reasonably priced gardening gloves and took the opportunity to purchase more than a dozen pairs to replace the gloves which were stolen last week. Even though it finally stopped raining about an hour after her party ended, I focused on cleaning house and gardening in my own yard instead of going to the SACG.
