My friend, garden television host, Joe Lamp’l Â just posted the next installment to his blossoming web series,Â “The $25 Dollar Victory Garden Challenge.”Â Joe has challenged himself to create an edible garden that will feed a family of four for under $25. dollars. Joe claims to have spent only $7 dollars so far. Â I spent that much this morning on coffee and a bagel!
In this segment, Joe is ready to take hisÂ seedlingsÂ andÂ transplantÂ them outdoors. The challenge is, Joe’s site needs some clearing in order to create the garden beds and the mautre nandinaÂ plants are not leaving the yard without a fight!
Once extracted from the ground, green guru Joe isn’t content with just “throwing away” a perfectly good plant, Joe puts a notice onÂ Freecycle.comÂ and catches the attention of an interesting taker. You’ll have to watch the video to see who this person is and witnessÂ Â ”six degrees of separation,”Â play out in Joe’s garden!
