Finally, I’m back home and able to blog. But not before going to the Southside Community Land Trust’s plant sale and loading up on organically grown vegetables to plant at my garden plot at Fox Point Community garden.
I was so excited to be back home, with beautiful weather that was perfect for plant shopping and planting. SCLT has a great, two-day annual plant sale and we saw lots of people we knew. It was a great feeling to be planting again.
We planted a two kinds of tomatoes–a kind that fruits early for northern climates as well as cherries–as well as cucumbers, basil, epazote, spinach, swiss chard, hot peppers, and even a couple of stalks of corn for good measure. I threw in a corn poppy (Papaver rhoeas) just for the heck of it. Here’s what it all looked like at the end of the day.
I took some more photos of the whole garden–not just my little plot but the whole community garden itself. I’ll post those in a day or two. It’s a pretty funky little garden and I’m happy to be there!
