I was referred to your blog by the folks at Eaton Farms when I inquired about a CSA share. They said I could follow what a half share looks like. I can't thank them enough. I love your blog!!

My partner Thomas and I moved here from NYC late last summer so this will be our first summer gardening - well we are going to garden in Earthboxes since we are renting a house here in Hyde Park until we sell our place in NY. I have started a ton of stuff from seed and they are germinating better than I expected. We will probably have extras and I would love to find someone who would be interested in them. Email me at centrejack (at) gmail (dot) com and I will send you a list of what I have started... If they all make it I will have extras of everything.

Keep up the awesome work on your blog.

All the best,
Jack
