Independence Day & Plot 102
Our new Community Garden plots are 200 square feet smaller then at the old location. That means that we have 400 square feet less space then we had last year. We have been on the waiting list for another plot since last winter. I really thought we wouldn't get another one until next year. Last week, two gardens were red flagged out due to no activity. Wouldn't you know our name came up. My first response was no. Even after Dora said that we would get help clearing it and it would get tilled. Then I told Dora I would think about it. When I told my hard working neighbor gardener Patti about it.....she said, take it and we can share. So I said yes. I think I'm going to blame my decision on the excessive heat!
Here is plot 102...full of weeds
Here another view of the weeds.....and
here's my partner in crime Patti!
Do you see that cleared path? That's the only part of the plot that is cleared. The person in the plot to the left must have moved the marker a few feet and planted corn right on the plot line. We are going to measure the plot tomorrow and then make a decision about the fencing on that side. Wish us luck.....I must be out of my mind to take this on in this heat! Well, at least we will have enough space for our Fall broccoli and cauliflower!
