    It seems odd to rate this so highly, when the event turned out to be so sad.

    There was a shooting that killed a young man two doors past the garden. We planted a blueberry bush in his memory and people who had come for his memorial helped.

    Despite the somberness, we did a lot: sheet mulched nearly a third of the garden; rototilled another area; and planted a total of three blueberry bushes. The garden looked great by the end of the day.

    Still, so sad.
