Day 1: bagel brainstorming

The apartment has turned out to be everything Pat and I could need this Summer. We’re located 1.5 away from the garden site, 1 mile from St. Sebastian Parish School, .5 mile from an Acme grocery store, convenience at its finest. It’s a one bed room apartment with a front room, small kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. I quickly took over the front room with my futon mattress, crafty storage box coffee table, and wire shelves from my dorm.The back bedroom is Pat’s territory.

Our first dinner! Pepper jack & sour dough grilled cheeses, veggies and cottage cheese.

Monday was a quality rainy Ohio day, no work. Today was our first day, orientation day! Pat and I met up with our site leader and mentor Dr. John Jewell at Einstein Bagel, about a mile down the road. Dr. Jewell was anxious to get the garden underway. We discussed some of his ideas and the layout of the garden. Later he gave us a tour of Akron’s Northwestern corridor.

Let the digging begin…
