Community Gardening

Even though I have many garden spaces on my 1/4 acre lot, it is incredibly wonderful to be able to rent a 16 x 30 foot plot at the Community Garden just around the corner from me.  In it, I can grow all kinds of things that I just don't have the space for in the home gardens.

For instance, under the pallet a-frame I've planted several Sugar Baby watermelon plants.  They are growing quite nicely, now that they are over transplant shock.

I can also grow one of my most favorite tomatoes, Pink Brandywine.  They are so happy in their sunny space, setting blossoms already!

I can grow beans, to be harvested when dry and used in delicious fall & winter soups.

There's also space for some pretty & edible flowers, a mixture of heirloom sunflowers and spicy nasturtiums.

With any luck, I'll have plenty for my own use with a little left spare to donate to the local food pantry.
