Can I rant a little bit about my community garden? The people running it are power mad. I receive a constant stream of emails about their rigid rules. The new one is a directive that all tomato plants need to be planted 1.5 feet from the edges of the plot. In a 6X6 plot doesn't that mean you can just plant one tomato plant? And this garden is NOT CHEAP. They seem to be terrified of stray tomato branches in the aisle. Who does this hurt? I don't understand. Are they afraid a child will be trapped in the branches? And one of the organizers cut down some of my favas because they were leaning. She wrote that she was "struggling" to get a wheelbarrow through. Doesn't that sound a bit dramatic? Also, there are two other paths to access her garden which are equally easy. Aarrggggghh. Where are the easygoing garden hippies?
