We are gradually making progress in our community garden. Here's the latest addition, the soon-to-be corn field. That's Pat in the background, where he's just planted corn in his private plot. This is the first year that most of the plots have been tilled like this, thanks to Pat. I had already planted most of mine before he rented a rototiller for all these different places. Last year I planted a few zucchini starts in this area, but they didn't do well at all. I'm hoping that we will all be enjoying some corn this year, since we put lots of good compost into the soil.
My spicy salad green are growing like, well, weeds! I was out there yesterday and munched a few leaves and was very pleased indeed. I also took the time to root out some of the buttercup weeds that have always threatened to take over the garden. It won't be long now before I'll be able to show you a salad bowl filled with these greens.
