Yay! My Community Garden Plot!

I wish I’d gotten a before picture. It took about 8 hours of work to dig up the grass and till in the compost on this 4′ x 25′ garden plot. Here it is, ready for planting…

I picked up some marigolds to plant around the edgers of my garden, and since I had the day off, I managed to get those and the veggies planted. It’s going to be a full little garden!

I’ve planted rosemary, chives, parsley, lavender, green beans, snap peas, carrots, radishes, beets, spanish onions, green onions, zucchini, spaghetti squash, lettuce and spinach. :-)

The Garden Plot!

So I contact Community Gardens and was able to get one of their garden plots out by Rockwood Park. My plot is 4′ x 25′ and I can’t wait to get started working on it. I’ve picked up some basic gardening supplies for myself, as well as compost and seeds for vegetables. First off, (as soon as it stops pouring and I have a few minutes of free time) I need to take up the grass that is covering a third of my plot, and then I’ll need to spread and till in the compost and blood meal. The garden is organic, so I’m looking forward to enjoying some tasty and healthy veggies through the summer, and I’ll be able to share with friends too, so don’t be surprised if I show up at your doorstep with raw veggies in hand. :-)
