the challenge: day 8 [borrowing & community redefined]

I put the “community” plan into action yesterday.  I borrowed a small hand shovel from my neighbor instead of buying one.  Now I can plan my Asian Jasmine (which I bought almost two weeks ago) and clean up my yard.  I do plan to buy a few vegetable plants for some empty containers I have.  I have a small spice garden already, and guess what?  I haven’t killed anything yet!  And it’s not an imaginary garden!

If you would like to see another really awesome story about sharing and building community, read Ann’s comment to my day 3 & day 4 post.  AWESOME!

And Caron, thanks for letting me borrow your shovel.  Promise to have it back in a couple of days.  The nice thing about sharing with your neighbors?  We all know where everyone lives!  😉
