Community Garden

How beautiful and warm and sunny it was today. Folks at the community garden are already talking tomato seedlings, eggplants and peppers. I picked leeks, parsnips, parsley and nettles to add to a chicken soup and parsley, sage and rosemary for a herbal tea.


Here is the news in pictures from my community garden plot.




Compost piles. These were 54 - 56 degrees today!



Field peas and broad beans.



Espaliered apples and green manure.




Garlic.


that is all.

Hi Von,Hi Lucky 1. Thanks! Lucky I am so lucky that the nearest community garden is only about 1200 meters away! And there is a bike path pretty much from my house to the gate :-)
