Year-long art project to mark 10th anniversary of BRG

Mecca Companies/Annex Student Living By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com Kyle Bach is President and CEO of Mecca Companies/Annex Student Living, L.L.C., located at 911 Main Street in Broad Ripple. He recently discussed his background and the building blocks of his company’s success. “I’m from South Bend. My family and I moved to Indianapolis about two years ago and renovated this house (at the company’s current address). We moved our business here in June of 2013. Currently, our company has about $25 million of construction in progress. We have construction projects in Kokomo, South Bend and Vincennes. Currently, all of those properties are student housing projects. I’ve been in real estate since 2002 after graduating from Indiana University. I joined an apartment development association in 2004 and then started my own company in 2007,” he explained. A historical area provided a new foundation for Mecca in Broad Ripple. “It’s interesting and it’s eclectic. It has an excellent landscape with several Mecca Companies/ amenities originally being on the Annex Student Living Monon Trail,” Bach noted. A recent purchase at 6363 Guilford 911 Main St [E5] Avenue contains 3,156 square (574) 876-2478 feet on two floors. Like Mecca’s www.meccacompanies.com office, its proximity to retail outlets, banks, restaurants and downtown Indianapolis places it in an ideal commercial area. “We recently removed the asbestos siding and are painting the original wood siding among other renovations. My partner, Rob Martinson and I (our partnership is under the entity Monon Housing Partners, LLC), purchased the adjacent building for future expansion of Mecca Companies, Inc./Annex Student Living, LLC, but are currently marketing it for lease. Rob and I are acquiring other assets in the Broad Ripple area, stay tuned for those,” he said. Bach surveyed the regional commercial building market: “Our current developments are at regional campus, community colleges and some private schools. We’d like to be at IUPUI as that campus increases in enrollment. We feel there’s substantial development potential at Butler University and the University of Indianapolis. We have approximately 1,000 beds in student development in our pipeline in three states.” This niche in the Midwest student building market has generated consistent growth for Mecca. He also reflected on the Circle City’s real estate prospects, “I think obviously over the past three or four years, Indianapolis has gained substantial momentum. I believe that the urban core is continuing its momentum. I believe Indianapolis is a progressive community. Our target markets are in smaller or more rural communities. There is not a substantial amount of competition when it comes to the location and it gives us a more intimate relationship with the communities and the campuses that we serve. Our business model is unique in the sense that we’re providing housing in smaller communities. Our mission is to provide memorable college experiences through unique housing opportunities that serve as a catalyst

The Broad Ripple Gazette is turning 10 in May! To celebrate, we will turn over part of the front page to the art and creativity of 26 local artists in the next year’s worth of Gazettes. Each issue will feature a new banner on the front page with the text “The Broad Ripple Gazette” replaced by each artist’s rendition. The final printed size is 1” tall by 7.5” wide. Each artist is free to fill that space, while incorporating the words “The Broad Ripple Gazette” in some readable manner. Interested artists (painting, pencil, photography, tattoo, cartoon, ceramics, wood, metal, or any kind of art media you can come up with) can contact the Gazette at alan@broadripplegazette.com to request to be included in the project. We will fill the 26 slots in the year-long calendar and give a deadline to each artist as slots are available. Artists would then submit a high-res image of the banner piece (B&W or COLOR) in TIF, PDF or JPG, a one or two paragraph artist bio, a high-res photo for the artist, and a signed copy of the contributor agreement by the given deadline. The agreement gives the Gazette rights to publish the art, but allows the artist to retain ownership and rights to the art.


The Jazz Kitchen, 5377 College Avenue [OO23 on map], celebrated 20 years on April 1. In 1994 David Allee opened the doors to what would be voted numerous times as one of the “Top 100 Jazz Clubs in the World” by DownBeat magazine. A signature Indianapolis locale for music, food and culture, The Jazz Kitchen consistently blends a contemporary feel with the rich jazz history of the city. Since 1994, The Jazz Kitchen has presented the best in local, regional and international entertainment, hosting jazz legends such as J.J. Johnson, Ray Brown, Terence Blanchard, Harry Connick, Jr., Poncho Sanchez, Jimmy Smith, David “Fathead” Newman, James Moody, Victor Wooten and many more. The club continues to help drive the local music and culture scene in Indianapolis and has been a primary hub for the cultivation of new projects and opportunities for the city’s fertile jazz music scenes. The Jazz Kitchen boasts a menu of some of the most original and flavorful dishes in the city, combining the exciting flavors and influences of New Orleans and beyond. Highlights include homemade Spanish paella, eggplant tower, not-so-Cajun chicken, walnut-crusted salmon and an extensive collection of entrées from locally sourced vendors such as Kincaid’s Meats. Moving forward, The Jazz Kitchen is poised to continue offering a strong tie into the city’s bright and growing cultural scene. Congratulations to David at the Jazz Kitchen (and Bebop Pizza next door!)

for economic development.” According to their website, www.meccacompanies.com, they have produced in excess of 1,750 units throughout the Midwest over the past seven years with a total development cost exceeding $150 million. Bach and his colleagues recently attended the National Apartment Association Student Housing Conference in Las Vegas. “One of the key components that we picked up while there is having superior management in place. Without that, it certainly affects the perception and quality of your project and impacts the tenants. Social media is still the king,” he said. Mentioning the benefits of his work, “The most rewarding aspect of being an entrepreneur is the ability to surround myself with a team of professionals

and peers that share the same vision as me. It is important for me to establish goals, incorporate our core values and emulate our mission statement on a daily basis. However, without a team in place to implement these, my leadership is obsolete. We are truly a family of various skill sets.” Their team also includes Chief Marketing Officer Thomas R. Tomaszewski and NSP (Neighborhood Stabilization Program) Director Mark Nicholas Stanfa. Mecca Companies’ future is as bright as an early spring sunrise. In addition to meeting Midwest college housing needs, they are destined to grow in Broad Ripple as well.

March Land Use meeting for Village held at IAC By Mario Morone

mario@broadripplegazette.com The Broad Ripple Village Association zoning meeting convened at the Indianapolis Art Center on Tuesday, March 25th with approximately 25 individuals in attendance. David Gilman appeared on behalf of Stenz Construction concerning the zoning of 1.6 acres for retail use with outdoor seating next to Howald Heating and Cooling. This project would add 8,000 square feet of new commercial space in a north and south parallel to the Monon Trail. A decorative five-foot high wrought iron fence would be provided by Howald Heating and Cooling that would be installed round the perimeter of their property. There would also be a transitional yard design to complement the Bill Brink Memorial Garden. A Phase 1A building addition of 3,000 square feet and Phase 1B would include a concrete pad. Phase II would comprise about 4,783 square feet with 54 parking spaces and bike racks near Westfield Boulevard. Flowering trees and a potential location for a rain garden may appear between the Monon Trail and Westfield Boulevard. Jay and Chelsey Wetzel are the new owners of Union Jack Pub, located at 924 Broad Ripple Avenue. They proposed to add a patio to the back of the location. “We want to preserve the history and tradition of the place while adding a new and modern flavor. We look forward to the next chapter of the Union Jack Pub in Broad Ripple Village,” they said. Information regarding further development of this will be announced at a future date. Kevin Buchheit, Senior Planner with Krieg DeVault LLP, appeared on behalf of Martin Dentistry to present details and graphics related to a proposed illuminated monument sign at 1724 Broad Ripple Avenue. The monument sign will front on and set perpendicular to Broad Ripple Avenue in order to achieve the best visibility for passing east-west traffic. He also discussed the plans to finish some of the second story space for ancillary aspects of the dental practice. The property was rezoned and several variances were granted earlier in 2014 to support site redevelopment for the new dental office. According to their website, www.brva.org, they are “a not-for-profit community organization serving residents and businesses in Broad Ripple. Founded in 1969, the BRVA is the oldest and largest volunteer organization actively working on initiatives that enrich the community, attract investment, amplify public spaces, and improve quality of life in Broad Ripple. The BRVA’s mission is to support and encourage a spirit of community cooperation in Village development and beautification and to serve as a community liaison to the City of Indianapolis.” The next BRVA zoning meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 22 at 6 p.m. at the Indianapolis Art Center.

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

Below is a philosophical look at faith.

Faith To extend self into the panorama. To become one with the photograph. To enlarge the universe of things and concepts to include self and to extrapolate self into the all-consuming enterprise of love. To magically transform reality from the center of being and extend oneself into the periphery. Faith defies possibilities and confounds those whose educations, rooted in the material world, become meaningless and even a hurdle in faith perfecting herself through love. C.W. Pruitt II Jan. 18, 2014

The background of The Gazette:

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and is Assistant Band Director at BRMHS. I am currently the organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s and 1940’s. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRMHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the six Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other five districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/ recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

At the corner of Guilford and Westfield Blvd., one of the most historic buildings in Broad Ripple has been the home of Chelsea’s since 1990

Chelsea’s celebrates 20 years

by Alan Hague

Chelsea’s recently celebrated twenty years in Broad Ripple. It was St. Patrick’s Day back in 1984 when David and Ellen Matthews first opened their card and gift shop in a small storefront on Guilford. The store has become a landmark, bringing in customers from around the city. During my interview, a customer told Ellen that he has been shopping at Chelsea’s ever since it opened twenty years ago. “Our customers are very loyal”, says Ellen, “A woman told me the other day that she and her sister never shop anywhere else. Our customers mean a lot to us.” For the last fourteen years it has been in the historic building on the northeast corner of Guilford and Westfield Blvd. Some of the fixtures are original to the Lobraico’s Drug Store. A prominent original fixture still in use at Chelsea’s is in the drug store photo on page three, the tall cabinet next to Ivy Lobraico. The original floor made of broken tile pieces can still be seen by the entrance. In 1998 they added on the 908 Westfield Blvd. building to the east. In 1999 they were awarded the “Best new construction compatible with a historic building” award. It all started at 6317 Guilford. David C. Matthews was David and Ellen Matthews working at Methodist Hospital in administration and Owners of Chelsea’s Ellen Morley Matthews was working at Microsonics as their financial officer. Ellen had thought of owning her own business since high school. They had been married for eight years when they decided to try their hand at retail. “It had to be in Broad Ripple”, says Ellen, “It is the most liberated spot in Indy.” David said when he first came to Indianapolis it was instantly obvious that Broad Ripple Village was different. “It had that courtesy of Matthews family small-town feel, a Bohemian place. It drew people The original Chelsea in like a magnet.” Their concept for the store was cards and home decor. Contemporary and art deco were the styles they chose as the theme. The location was 6317 Guilford, previously occupied by Clark and Osborne. They needed a name. David and Ellen had adopted a collie/shepard/huskie mix from the Humane Society and named her Chelsea. “We were sitting at the kitchen table one night and we decided that there was no name better than Chelsea’s for our new store.” Chelsea had been born with hip problems so the David and Ellen had both of her hips reconstructed. “Chelsea had an amazing vocabulary. She could understand so many words. She was so well trained that Mike Lobraico would let her come into Lobraico’s Drug Store to visit. Mike would sit and talk to her and she listened to every word. She was Jack, the one-eyed cat. A favorite also a regular visitor at Handy Hardware.” at Chelsea’s.

David said that while he was working at the hospital, a woman approached him and said that her daughter had named her baby after the store. “It meant even more to us since the store was named after our special dog.” In 1989, after seventeen years, Chelsea passed away. But Chelsea’s is not without a beloved mascot. Two and a half years ago, Lisa Griffin, employee and school teacher, found a stray cat in a cornfield in Sheridan. She named the ‘female’ cat Cornflower. Cornflower had a badly damaged eye. When Lisa took Cornflower to the vet they discovered that it was actually a male cat. They considered changing the name to Cornflake, but that didn’t fit. Ellen thought of “One-Eyed Jacks”. Jack seemed just right. Customers now come in to see Jack, just like they used to do with Chelsea. He is king of the store and knows it. Jack was featured in a recent INtake article on store pets. “Years ago wooden flowers became our signature item. Back then we only had tulips. Because of our success with them, one of our vendors has been able to expand his line to Colorful wooden flowers of all types can be found throughout the store include a whole range of flowers. Even in the dead of winter, with the pretty wooden flowers it feels like spring at Chelsea’s.” Another popular item at Chelsea’s is greeting cards. “We were one of the first stores to offer art cards without any message printed inside. I remember a customer in the store looking for a card to send to his father that had recently moved to a nursing home. He couldn’t find the right card, so I suggested an art card and explained how he could write in a special message. He was hesitant, but did it and later told me that this card had been the best communication ever between him and his father. Success stories like that make us feel great!” Chelsea’s has loyal customers and loyal employees. Many of their employees have been with them for years. Laura Needler, the store manager, has been at Chelsea’s for thirteen years. “Our employees are like family”, said Ellen, “Many past employees come in to the store to visit when they are in the area. We call them the CFT, the Chelsea Family Team.” It may have been destiny for Ellen to open her store. Her grandmother, Anna Dudley Wilhelm, opened a general store around the turn of the century in Brookville, Indiana. [Brookville was the home of the US Land Grant office for central Indiana] Below is a picture of that store taken in the early 1900’s. Ellen’s mother Florence (left) and aunt Edna (right) are in the photo with courtesy of Matthews family her grandmother. “It is Mrs. Wilhelm’s store in Brookville, Indiana around 1913. inspiring to think of my Mrs. Wilhelm is pictured with her daughters. grandmother running that store by herself in rural Indiana way back then. I know how much work it is. Thinking of her strength and determination gives me strength.”

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Let’s start with the easy puzzle. We will try to put a 2 in the center section which contains 4-5-8-9. The 2 in the middle section of the top row eliminates the space between the 8-9. The 2 in the middle section of the bottom row eliminates the three spaces above it. The only place left is between the 4-5. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

One of the first bottles of wine I bought when I turned 21 was Riunite Lambrusco. As a kid, I had seen my parents and their friends drinking it. And because I was always given a “taste” as a teenager, I knew what to expect: an easy drinking red wine with bright, sweet flavors of cherries and strawberries and just enough bubbles to make a soft fizz in the glass. It came in a screw cap bottle, and was a great buy. Fun to drink and share. A few years ago I learned about the REAL lambrusco. It was dry. BONE dry. And was not cheap or screw-capped. In fact, there are 8 types of lambrusco grapes. Most lambrusco wines are made from a blend of the grapes but the best use just one. The grape itself is not sweet, but winemakers made it that way for the American palate by stopping fermentation and leaving residual sugar or adding a bit of grape must. I was intrigued. But as usual, supply to the US was limited and getting bottles of dry lambrusco in Indianapolis was even more of a challenge. Thankfully times have changed and I got my hands on a bottle 2011 Cavicchioli Vigna del Cristo Lambrusco di Sorbara. The Cavicchioli family makes this top quality wine from 100% lambrusco sorbara. This dry, fizzy red wine is STILL a fun drink but worlds away from the sweet rush of Riunite. I recently hosted a birthday dinner for one of the neighbors and thought the time was right to see what the group thought about this blast from the past party wine. Was glad I did. Even those who had only had the sweet style of lambrusco found this dry, crisp, red fruit driven, slightly effervescent wine a welcome taste. Comments included, “evaporates clean”, “dry not anything like Riunite”, and my favorite comment from the birthday boy who along with his wife had recently returned from a visit to Italy, “almost enchanting, this makes me crave my wife”. My notes: Aromas of almond, dried black cherries. Crisp clean sophisticated flavors of plum, black cherry. Palate cleansing and delicious pairing with black and green olives. Also on the birthday beverage roster that night–some of the celebrant’s favorite varietals and bottles that can be easily found and enjoyed with food: 2010 Chateau La Fleur Morange Mathilde, Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France–100% merlot. Bold nose of plum, leather, red fruit. Intense notes of red plum, currant, vanilla. Elegant wine with grippy tannins primed for beef. 2010 Michel Torino Malbec, Argentina–Inviting nose of cedar, black fruit. Rich bold flavors of blackberry, wild blueberry, white pepper. Delicious.

Howling at the Moon by Susan Smith

While I may be a writer for this paper I am also a reader. It is here that I get all my information for the comings and goings of the Broad Ripple businesses. I always look for the Random Ripplings photos to keep me in the loop. This last issue was a true trip down memory lane as I read that Chelsea’s and Periwinkle, both long time gift stores, will be history. I became nostalgic as I read the full page farewell message written by Ellen and David Matthews, owners of Chelsea’s. I was a gift sales rep for many years and when I left that side of the business I landed next door to Chelsea’s at Turandot (another fabulous gift shop) working part time. I’m sure many of you remember that wonderful store that closed in 2007. I worked there until I opened my own store, City Dogs Grocery. While toying with the idea of opening my store I drew on the advice and mentoring of the owner’s of Mr. E’s Hallmark in Nora Plaza. Fran and Judy retired to Florida after closing, probably in 2006, never seeing the fruits of my labor. A gift shop is trendy and seasonal and new product is always being sought to keep customers interested. There are buying trips to Chicago and Atlanta. I used to work at the gift shows there. I look around and I see that many gift stores have faded away. Remember Beanie Babies? Picture frames, candles, wind chimes and potpourri were hot items. Today it is in style to be a minimalist. Less is more. Greeting cards are a tough market in today’s world. I didn’t know David and Ellen personally but I shopped there on occasion from their beginning. Thirty years is a long time! Congratulations! So you wonder, what will take its place in the building left behind on Westfield Blvd.? That question allowed for more nostalgia as I remembered Lobraico’s Rexall Store that was there prior. The last issue of the BR Gazette featured the historic ad for Lobraico’s as it appeared in 1939 mentioning its “real luncheonette and fountain service”. My mother used to talk about her Broad Ripple High School friends who would go there after school in the 30’s. In the 70’s we would shop there with our children for our prescriptions. Joe Lobraico knew us all by name and was so friendly to the kids. The interior was so neat with all the dark wood cabinetry. That era, the 1930’s through the ‘70s was a time of the corner drug store. If you lived here those days you remember. If not, and you are of a younger generation, you may only know CVS and Walgreen and for that you have missed an interesting piece of retail history. Binkley’s restaurant at 59th and College has done an excellent job of preserving that history. They have a great collection of black and white photos of old drug stores hung for you to enjoy. They kept that theme because that corner was once Binkley’s drug store, complete with soda fountain that served the best cherry phosphates. Moving south on College to 54th Street was Baker’s Drugs which is now Sam’s Gyros and previously an army/navy surplus store. At 52nd and College was Sullivan’s Drug Store where Luna is now. Still going south on College to 49th, 46th and 42nd Streets, all corners had drug stores as did the corner at 56th and Illinois, Schoener’s Drugs, where Starbucks is now. Not too long ago the last independent druggist to leave our midst was Hamakers at 49th and Pennsylvania where Patachou now invites you for breakfast. As retail needs change the architecture that it leaves behind or repurposes is ever changing. I think about those changes in Broad Ripple. The biggest change on the drawing board is the Shell station and the proposed demolition of the 1930’s quaint apartments on the canal. What once was a simple liquor store on Broad Ripple Avenue on the Monon Trail is a new multi-story building. The small building east of Chelsea’s that once housed a furniture refinisher is now a large building with multiple tenants. Roselyn Bakery and the Marathon station made way for the parking garage. Head south again and see how many small College Avenue homes have become businesses with signs out front. They too are in line for change and demolition. It’s being negotiated right now with bungalows at 59th and College to make room for a new office building. The Old National Bank replaced a nursing home. Nothing is certain but change, and retail has certainly changed. Susan Smith is a life-long area resident and is the owner of City Dogs Grocery located at 52nd and College and at 884 Massachusetts Avenue.

In each issue, I will print my transcription of the old Town of Broad Ripple meeting minutes. These are taken from original, hand-written minutes that contain many spelling errors. I transcribed the records as they were entered, including errors. I will make some corrections/additions to the text in brackets [ ]. The original minutes books are at the Indiana State Archives at 6440 E. 30th St.

Respect and Don’t Ride At the latter part of this April, I will be returning to Boston to attempt this famous marathon again in the wake of last year’s tragic events. Unfortunately and very understandably, there will be many changes this year, and likely in all of the years to come, which will hopefully make runners and spectators become patient and respectful to the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.), victims of the bombings and everyone affected by it not to mention for the safety of everyone along the 26.2 mile course. The B.A.A. has worked tirelessly to address how it was going to handle all of the many factors surrounding how to react to the misfortune that occurred to such a joyous day and event; from deciding how to handle those who didn’t finish, to how to handle the runners gear check, to making the course as safe as possible and still enjoyable for runners and spectators alike. And, the B.A.A. has been praised for its attention and efforts by the entire world. Therefore, you can imagine my surprise when I read an article entitled: “Some Bicyclists Will Carry on Boston Tradition: Those who ride marathon course day of race have been asked not to.” Really?! So, apparently hundreds (likely thousands) of cyclists show up very early on race morning to ride the full course, and many also ride it back to the start line in Hopkinton to take advantage of the Patriot’s Monday off and the luxury of closed streets where there is usually heavy traffic. The article reads: “The guerrilla ride was never sanctioned, but it’s been tolerated by authorities, as long as the bikes were off the course before the wheelchair competitors were on it. Now cyclists are being asked to stay away so that the route can be secured. And while some are making alternate plans, others plan to continue the ride.” In fact, NOT ONLY are many continuing to ride this year, but due to the tragedy there is a surge of new riders joining in as a way to “connect with the marathon”. In an effort to thwart this ride, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has canceled a designated train it ran last year to carry 700 midnight riders to Southborough, near Hopkinton. But nevertheless, gobs of cyclists are chartering buses and renting trailers, or pedaling to the start. Making the tiny town of the start line, Hopkinton, even more congested undoubtedly. While I feel that this “idea” is cool, as an effort to promote fitness and a way to enjoy a sacred holiday, I feel that these cyclists are being extremely selfish and insensitive to the situation. The safety officials and the B.A.A. have enough to worry about this year to implement all of the new protocols, and the last thing they need to deal with is another potential hurdle. It is a Marathon…not a bike tour. There are thousands of organized rides every year that these riders could attend. Or, god forbid, they organize their own separate ride on the same day at another location in Boston to commemorate the marathon (if it is really about that). And back to the fact that this year brings new riders, some of which may be inexperienced. What if someone falls and create a huge crash with dozens of cyclists? This could certainly happen especially due to the hilly and winding course. This could cause several of the safety officials intended for the marathon to attend to this problem. What if this ride distracts those who set up water stations, checkpoints, first aid stations, police, etc, ETC?! Again, this is selfish especially when they were “asked” not to ride. I am surprised that the Boston Police can’t make this illegal in the first year after the bombings. What adds insult to injury, a decade long tradition will be missing from this year’s Boston Marathon. Ruck marchers will not be allowed to make the 26.2mile trek from Hopkinton to Boylston because they are considered “unauthorized participants.” Active members of the military have participated in ruck marches at the Boston Marathon for years. Donning full fatigues and carrying 40-pound rucksacks on their backs, ruckers march the length of the course in support of families of fallen soldiers. However, because they were also “asked” not to, they will not be there. It was so cool to see them on the course getting huge cheers from the excited spectators; I will miss that  Sadly, but not surprisingly when reading the online comments to the article, there is a clear rift in the biking-running community, and I feel that in doing a ride such as this, it is not helping matters in that area as well. Maybe I will lace up next year and run the Tour De France…??? If the cyclists truly want to feel connected to the Boston Marathon, maybe they should consider qualifying and actually running it; or better yet volunteer at a water stop or the finish line.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Get Ready for Homegrown It’s time to plan this year’s garden. I am a missionary for homegrown vegetable gardening. Flowers are fine, but only a few of them can be eaten and usually only for garnish. So I would like to spark your imagination to try something different this year! There are so many ways to plant a garden, and they can be so many sizes. To say “I don’t have room” isn’t a good excuse. The only excuse that is plausible is “I don’t have any sun” and sometimes that can be overcome. See if one of the following ideas will work for you. Let me start with the smallest of gardens: containers. From window boxes to a single pot, vegetables and herbs can be successfully grown on a patio, a back door stoop, or in a tiny spot in the sun. Fanciful containers, plastic pots, buckets, bath tubs, water troughs, and even garbage cans can be great containers in addition to ones specifically designed for container gardening. My son successfully planted tomatoes in a two bucket system with a tube inserted in the lid where the hose is put to water the plant. With the addition of natural fertilizers, this is a wonderful way to grow— no weeds and plenty of tomatoes.

Vertical gardening in gutters attached to a garage

Did you know you can grow potatoes in a trash can? The most important thing is to be sure the containers have good drainage. http://www.almanac.com/video/ growing-potatoes-trash-can Vertical gardening is becoming a more popular way to plant fruits and vegetables. When space is limited, go up — up the side of a garage or wall, up a fence, up a structure built just for multiple gardenette (sic) spaces. You can sow one-kind-of veggies or multiples; this includes herbs too. Wood pallet gardening is also a way of compartmentalizing plants. The openings between the boards let the plants grow, and weeding is minimal. Be sure to place the pallet where you want it before you fill it with soil. Also, be sure the pallet is in enough sun and near a water source. The pallets are very similar to square foot gardening. The layout really works and provides continuous space for planting and harvesting. Divide the area in your yard in 12x12 sections and lay out the rows—3 rows of 4 sections would be a good start. Use bricks or boards to section the area. Additional soil should be added to fill the square foot boxes. Planning the garden is a must here. Plant early-harvest seeds and plants to the outside. They will grow fast even in cooler temperatures, and you will harvest them first. An early harvest often allows for another sowing of seeds for a fall harvest. Plant mid-season or late harvest plants on the interior of the square. You want to be able to reach to pick.

Straw bale gardening

My favorite way to garden sans backyard is straw bale gardening. I wrote about this method of gardening last year as I was beginning the straw bale experiment. It was a huge success! I am going to increase the number of bales I put in my driveway this year. Conditioning the bales is critical. It takes about 10 day to three weeks to get the bales ready, alternating watering and fertilizing so the bale starts composting. Each bale can accommodate three tomato plants, and last year I used six bales. Note: A class on straw bale gardening will be offered at Backyard Birds on Saturday, April 12. Call 255-7333 to reserve a spot and order bales. Now I hope you are inspired to start your gardening plans and possibly entertain ideas for trying new techniques. Urban gardening with the satisfaction of growing our own food is becoming bigger with each year. Plan, plant, enjoy!
