Our town is having a community garden this year, and Chef and I are super-excited about it. It’s completely free, and all you have to do it sign up and attend a couple of meetings. We’ve already signed up for two 20×20 plots. The plots are in full sun! That’s a new adventure for us since our backyard has a lot of shade, and it’s hard to find the sunny spots. We’re hoping for better results than the past two years.
Chef has already got the plots planned out. We intend to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, beets, lettuce, collard greens, Swiss chard, yellow squash, zucchini, pumpkins, potatoes, peas, beans, spinach, corn, broccoli, cauliflower… and other stuff that I can’t remember. Corn is totally new for us — we have neither the space nor the sunlight to try it at home. And our pumpkins have flopped the last two years, but hopefully with full sun, we’ll have better results.
Chef bought some seeds this week, and we have others left over from last year. We plan to buy some plants when they become available at the farmers’ market. We can’t plant in the community garden until April 1, but he might do some planting at home before then.
Yaaaaay for fresh veggies. I’m so excited!
