Looking for a Location, Part Two

I haven't written here in the last few days. I've been a bit ill, first with an upper expiratory infection, then with an infection in my year duct. That doesn't mean that I haven't been thinking about the project, or doing something about it.

For one thing, I'm trying to generate interest in the project by telling everyone I come in contact with about it.

I've also been searching some more for a location. To that end, I have spent some time driving around with my niece, making a list a list of vacant lots to check on. My next step is to take that list to the city planner to try to locate the owners and figure our which one will work best for the garden.

The Next Step

Well, I've taken a couple of days to recuperate from the shock of taking second place, as well as babysitting two whirlwinds (with help) for a couple of days.

Now it's time to embark on the next step of this endeavor. The way I see it, that's finding a place for the garden. That means a lot of phone calls, letters, and visits. Hopefully it won't take to long. Then, once I get the check for the prize, I can start the organizational meetings.

*sigh* What have I gotten myself into?
