erica updated the site

Hello! This is erica. i updated the site today and now i’m writing a blog post!

Here’s a picture from my family’s urban garden last year. A mysterious monster cucurbit grew near our compost bins. We didn’t plant it! We let it grow to about 100 sq. ft. and then trimmed it back. In October it bore fruit: it was a pumpkin patch! Just in time for Halloween.

This year the same space is occupied by a massive elderflower shrub. Whatever life finds its way to the compost area, it takes hold and GROWS!
