I hadn't been to my community garden plot in South Philly in over a week, so I was ecstatic to see how well my spinach and lettuce were doing. Actually, the entire garden looks great, and I'm so proud to be a part of it. I will give up my plot at the end of the year since I was able to get another community plot in North Philly; it's going to be a bittersweet time.
Here are some updated pics:
(Everyone's plots are looking beautiful.)
(My lovely plot.)
(My lettuce and spinach before harvesting. The cabbage is also getting big. I also have mesculun sprouting and two strawberry plants that I transplanted last week.)
(Those are peas on the left. The rest are scattered arugula and mesculun. Some dill, beets, and radishes too, I think.)
(On the menu today: lettuce and chives from the garden with some chickpeas and feta and a balsamic vinaigrette.)
(The spinach is beautiful. I'm freezing it today for later use.)
Oh, and I got some great news. I may have access to almost 30' x 30' growing space! I met someone who's looking for a tenant gardener for a lot adjacent to his property. I expressed great interest, visited the lot, and I think I may be able to plant at the end of the summer (just in time to put in fall crops!).
