I had a very similar quandry recently with the added challenge that I had a full, beautiful formal dining room set and that it had belonged to my grandmother and was given to me after she died. I looked for anything that I could do to make it work in my space and in the end, it just didnt work. I couldn't bear to sell it, so I ended up donating it to a local architectural salvage not for profit that also sells furniture. I went by to see the set after I had donated it and they had recovered the chairs, polished it up and it looked fabulous. Made me feel so good to know that it was going to look great in someone (else's) home.
All this to say, if you dont think it will work for you, its ok. Find something that will. Then sell or donate it and it will look great in someone else's space.

"Flotsam" by David Wiesner is my favorite children's book. The illustrations are really lovely.

I couldn't get the link you provided to the DC urban gardeners to work. Perhaps this is the correct link: http://www.dc-urban-gardeners.com/
