Above: “Tonight’s dinner harvest! Grown in Petworth, where our tiny cubicle of a garden produces a steady stream of herbs and lettuces, plus tomatoes (5 varieties represented here), peppers, radishes, cucumbers, edamame and eggplant. Grapevine has over 50 clusters of table grapes this year, and we had some blueberries and strawberries. Fig tree sadly froze this winter, but is regenerating from the ground up.”

“86-year-old Petworth resident Sarah Wright enjoying a near-perfect, mid-summer afternoon in her secret garden. She and husband, Earl, 87, a retired Howard University employee, have tended to the organic garden for about 40 years. “But his health no longer allows for that,” she said Friday.”

Ed. Note: Hoping someone can take over the reins so Mr. and Mrs. Wright, and others, can continue to enjoy the garden for years to come.
