On a related note, I also have been hearing about folks who share their yards with those not lucky enough to have space to grow food and flowers..
While I was poking around the community garden, I was hoping that some of the members would pop in to tend to their plants so that I could talk to them, but unfortunately that didn't happen.. Nevertheless, I snapped a few photos so that I could share the beauty of these productive plots that show just how much food can be grown (in mid-June!) in a small space.. note, the fun use of hanging containers to grow vining plants..
|Who says food garden't aren't beautiful spaces?? Not me!|
|Everyone plants their own assortment of favourite veggies/herbs/fruits and flowers.|
|Strawberries and leaf lettuce.|
|Love this plot - incredibly productive for mid-June and so much variety.|
|Dinosaur kale, lettuces, carrots, garlic, nasturtiums, peas and so much more!|
|A bounty of spring greens and tomato seedlings for summer fruits.|
|Too cool.. zucchini, peas and a few other edible vines.|
|Very organized spaces and such a nice place to spend a few hours..|
|Asian greens and more!|
|There were also a few cherry trees, high bush blueberries and more..|
