Not sure how to use this....

History of the Garden
So this was here when I opened it. But I didn't write it. Is this my post?

Yes, Lisa, you did it. That was a post. I too am not sure how to do this. We will see.

PS Nancy, somehow I deleted your post so maybe you should try again.

Yes, Lisa, you did it. For some reason I'm having trouble getting this to show. A lot of this is trial and error. Nancy, somehow I deleted your comment so try again.

The oldest plants in the garden.

The yew against the white wall, the boxwoods (from Mt. Vernon), the sedum in the planter (which blooms in the fall) are the only three plants I remember from the time when I started to volunteer there in 1984. One day we tried to prune back the yew (why I'm not sure) and a guy from off the street volunteered to help us. For some reason he had a machete and started to whack it down, almost to the ground. I thought Finley was going to faint. But, as you see it came back. I noticed how large it is getting and wondered how much larger it could get.

Whenever you see psumc schaef earth garden said....that's me, Ellen. For some reason it does this and I don't know why.

This is hilarious. I don't know what I'm doing either, but I think I just created a post. However, I was trying to post in response to Ellen's query about this summer, but instead it jumped into the "history of the garden" section.
