It has been nearly a year now since we moved to Seattle – my how time flies! Well, I was sure this would not happen until at least next year, but I have come upon a wonderful surprise….
Our New Plot
We have a community garden plot!! One became available at the last minute, and I jumped at the opportunity. It’s not at any of the three gardens for which I’m wait listed, so it’s a bit further from our home – over a mile away. But it’s ours, and it’s ready to be weeded and planted. So exciting!
On a beautiful sunny day yesterday, I walked to meet the garden coordinator and to be formally introduced to the plot.
I’m really looking forward to gardening in this community setting. I’ll be participating in some work parties throughout the year (it’s required), and I look forward to composting and gardening side by side with other food growers.
Oh, I’m so excited I’ve already mapped out the plot with all the things we didn’t have enough space for at my mom’s, or that my mom just wasn’t inspired to grow. Want to see?
Soybeans, beets, eggplant, bulb fennel, arugula and other greens, kohlrabi, kale, onions, carrots, rhubarb, and amaranth. Wahoo!
I’ve been trying to go on daily walks, and now I have a destination…. This makes me very happy.
