    right now i have a flat leafed chive of some sort, then peel offs are taking a bit to get straight up again, and i have spearmint and a low growing hearty oregano…i may have this other mint, too, but i’m not sure, as i just saw it today…i am beginning to collect herbs for random acts of putting them all over Buffalo…

      Thanks for reading my blog. I like the idea of pirate planting. It is so uplifting to be surprised by some wonderful, useful, fragrant plant that was left to bring unexpected pleasure to some passer-by. Our yard was full of some random mint that combines well with other mints to make a refreshing tea. There are also poppies that someone long ago planted. They make me smile in the busy spring days, blooming without any input or effort on my part.

      I read your site. It sounds like you contribute lots more to the community than beneficial plants!

    Great article in Buffalo Spree. Visited your farm last summer on a bike tour and was impressed.

    I am also interested in a cooperative exchange of work for produce. Please let me know if this is a possibility this summer. What you’re doing is wonderful!

      Thanks for your support,

    I was driving down Broadway and spotted the green house so I drove down Wilson and to my delight and surprise I was at a farm in the middle of the city. I had the pleasure to chat with some friendly young workers who needed better equipment for the job they were attempting. Are they volunteers?

      You met a group of volunteers from Catholic Charities. They are working on installing a grape trellising system for us. Yesterday was their first day, so I’m sure their efficiency will improve. Also, the ground is not the most gracious to work with – especially in July.
