Whew! The planning and planting of the Victory Gardens took way more energy and time (due to a very wet spring). Finally, here's the overview of what we have planted in all the various gardening spaces!
Home Base (the garden in the Rational Living Backyard)
4 tomato plants
3 hills cucumbers (regular and pickling)
2 pepper plants
2 hills (volunteer) potatoes
lettuce/mesclun/lettuce (already harvested)
radishes (already harvested)
Artists' Garden (space space by a lovely family of local artists)
1 summer squash
*they have also offered to share some of their cucumbers, tomatoes and blackberries
L's Garden (space donated by two sweet and fun gals)
1 hill cucumbers
1 ice-box melon
A's Garden (another patch of donated space by a lovely family which I don't have a photograph of yet)
Enough pole beans to fill a 8' x 6' patch of brown earth
Rational In-Laws Garden (a great place for a few odds and ends)
Each of the families involved has been very generous with their space. Our goal is to stay up on the needed maintenance of each garden and share a generous portion of the produce with the families in gratitude. This should prove interesting as the summer progresses.
And what have you planted, dear reader?
