Leaving Space


Is that all you’re going to plant? Aren’t you planting more stuff? Haven’t you planted anything yet? I survived the many questions from well-meaning friends and fellow community gardeners. The desire (and pressure) to overplant is overwhelming at times, but leaving space has paid off. My plants have room to grow. Everything is filling in beautifully now. In the few open spots I have just planted kale, which I will eat all fall and winter. Seems like that whole idea of leaving space might have some significance beyond the garden plot.
