Have you ever seen a community garden? If you are traveling north on I-81 near exit 5, you will see our garden. Be sure to wave "hi". (How will you find our plot? Look for the Godzilla Sunflowers. More on that later.)
I've been blogging this week about the community garden my spouse (he does almost all of the work especially in the past few years that I've had back problems) rents plots in. It is located in a county park here in upstate New York called Otsiningo Park. It parallels I-81 and our gardening efforts are accompanied by the sound of highway traffic.
This garden allows people living in apartments and rental houses and people whose home yards are too small or too shady to grow their own food.
Here are some photos taken today in the community garden. These are mainly not of our plot as I wanted to give a shoutout to all of our hard working gardening friends.
Some of us have traditional gardens of tomatoes, squash, and corn.
And then, there is my spouse and I. This year our main crop is Godzilla Sunflowers.
Our drought is breaking. We are very lucky, compared to a lot of the United States. My heart goes out to those still suffering from drought.
If it is gardening season where you live, what's growing well for you?
