Allow would-be gardeners who live in apartments or otherwise have no ground , to grow crops in your garden in exchange for ? a share of produce? other c onsideration? Of course taking care to know who they are and make entry arrangements.
ISTR there used to be something like that here; I'm trying to track it down , and if I don't find, start something.
I'm increasingly dubious about veg gardening, both because of water co$t pr obably increasing with CA drought, and because we don't really consume enough to b other. We have 4 farmers' markets in town, plus a Co-Op, plus Whole Foods (the lat ter of which I don't patronize), so even though organic is more expensive - - hey, you only go around once.
It's a big life transition after [censored] years of home veg/fruit gardeni ng! I can remember standing at the corn patch, chewing the kernels off the cob w/o even cooking!!! Ditto tomatoes right off the vine. And divine li ttle fraises du bois hiding under their foliage. And crisp snow peas...(pa use to wipe mouth)...
But the good years seem, if memory serves, to have been not as frequent as the less good.
