Ground was broken Saturday for the first home to occupy the land where the YWCA once stood on West Ave. It's nice to see something good happening with the land; nice to see a family of seven finally getting a home to call their own. It's great that the house, a two-family, will be built mainly with donated supplies and volunteer labor through Habitat for Humanity. It's a great location for a family - just down the street from Bethesda Park and very close to Central Middle, the library and downtown.
I did a little breaking ground of my own over the weekend; during light drizzle Saturday, and just prior to the rain that stormed in Sunday night. I'd been itching to get into the garden, more so this year since I'm renting a county plot on Northview for the first time.
I worked in the home garden and planted a couple things Saturday. Sunday took a short ride over to see just how big 20' x 20' is. Several of my organic garden neighbors were there setting plants and erecting fences even though very windy with lighning and rain visible in the distance. I spent all my time making raised beds, didn't finish and didn't plant anything before the rains hit.
