Dan's Garden: June 12

Posted: Updated:
As people age, it becomes more difficult to perform outdoor activities, but gardening doesn't have to be one of them.

This week our traveling garden is at Touchmark on West Century in Bismarck. This is not our first time here. We did this last year, a couple of segments of the garden show. I'm with Dorothy and the crew, which is Bernise, Alan and Edith, who was here last year. We're growing things in containers above the ground, and this is easy because we don't have to bend over, and its easy to water and weed and take care of them.

So, how long have you been gardening Dorothy?

"About thirty years," says Dorothy Krogen a Touchmark resident.  

And you're new to Touchmark, so you're going to try to keep this going and that's good. We're planting cucumbers, we're planting peppers, so maybe later in the year you could make some salsa and I can taste it for you?

"I think that'd be ok," says Krogen.

And I bet a lot of the ladies here are great cooks too. Also tomato plants, and we're going to have trailing, elisam and things like that to make it pretty.

Now, as time goes on, remember we need sunshine, we need water and we need to feed them. So, I'm gonna leave this with you. A little bit of miracle grow feeder, and you can feed every week or 10 days. You can be in charge of that and keep everybody working. 

"I'll give it a good try," says Krogen.

We'll do this again later in about three months and check on them.
