I had such a wonderful time at my first gardening class this past Saturday. What a wonderful group of people, all with different stories and from different "gardening backgrounds". Our hosts, Craig and Sarah Cyr of the Wine Cellar and Bistro were absolutely gracious. We also have a wonderful teacher, woman named Liberty, from the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture (CCUA). After spending a few hours tilling, and hoe'ing, and weeding, we shared a gorgeous lunch, prepared by Craig. The weather was absolutely perfect, and it was such a beautiful day to be outside, get our hands dirty, and meet new friends. I'm already looking forward to next month's class. In the meantime, I promise to have a new recipe for you this week. It's been a while!
