Dirty Virgins, Dirty Virgins, how does your garden grow?

Dirty Virgins, Dirty Virgins, quite contrary, how does your garden grow? With silver bells, and cockle* shells, and pretty maids all in a row!

So, I happen to be at Timbertown today for a Kindergarten bash. One of the Dirty Virgins (newbie gardeners who are growing veggies for Yellow Door), Angie, gave me a quick tour of the garden plots in the Community Garden.

Ten adventurous ladies, with no gardening experience, planted some seeds and are caring for the garden that is already blooming green with a slew of veggies. I was quite surprised to see the neat garden rows (hmmmm... neat rows.... note to self!) and the beautiful buddings of garden greens. We caught DV Denise and her son working the plot and snapped some photos to share. Enjoy!

* What is a cockle, anyway??? A cockle is
a group of small edible saltwater clams. And -- as you guessed it -- not found in Michigan!
