“We have a lot of gardeners who are older; who gave a lot earlier — they saved the gardens actually a number of times. Like Phyllis — unfortunately she’s in the hospital right now, she’s 94 and she has a double plot right up off the center. She was around when the Red Sox were trying to pave this for a parking lot. What the gardeners did was they pretended that there were more gardeners. So they all took double plots and made it look like it was more active. It was a rough period around here then…in the 60s and 70s.”
