My Gardens, Part Three – Community garden plot

Because you can never have too many gardens

Because you can never have too many gardens

Here’s my third garden. It is at the local community garden. It has gorgeous, beautiful soil. Not clay! It is in the flood plain of a river so it is beautiful bottomland.  It has been a long time since I have gardened in soil like this. I’ve planted cucumbers, a couple of varieties of beans, “pink” beans, most importantly. Pink beans are what my daughter calls scarlet runner beans because the immature beans are neon pink. I planted some old summer bulbs that should’ve been planted last summer and TOMATOES. A little room is left, just enough for a raspberry bush.

While planting the tomatoes and weeding this weekend I discovered that there is a lovely patch of sand burs. Luckily they had not gone to seed yet.

Thanks, Dad, for tilling it for me!
