Plants are in. I have feelings about this community garden setup which I might explore in a later post. But I'm going with it for now, I'll try to stick it out for a season.
I've got three cherry tomatoes (2x sungold, 1 sweet millions), bush beans, eggplant, sugar snap peas (2 types), black beauty zucchini, funny round summer squash, and funny round lemon cucumbers. I think I might be a bit overwhelmed with the cherry tomatoes and summer squashes/zukes, guess we'll see.
I'm looking into a plot in the community garden a few blocks away. It looks like it gets fairly full sun, which my yard does not. I would get a 4x8 raised bed for the year.
I've got feelings about local soil toxicity but they're outweighed by wanting a plot. Raised bed helps but they're unlined. I wouldn't grow root vegs, roots accumulate toxins. Greens too, but less. I wish tomatoes grew better here, I'll do some cherry tomatoes though. And I'll prob end up with a bunch of squash.
I'm over here now!
