Even though our borrowed gardening space is still in production, we’re already plotting our fall planting. Or is it planning our fall plot?
We’re on a waiting list for a community garden a mile away, one of the two in DC managed by DC Parks and Rec. We saw at least one unused plot in this garden, but apparently there is no policy about using or losing (your plot). This community garden also has plot-able space currently being occupied by invasive weeds. I offered to weed my own space but did not get any response. So we’re not optimistic about planting there any time soon.
But we recently learned about a new community garden being organized just a few blocks away. This would be a “make your own” garden where the plots need to be dug & framed, soil amended, etc. So now we’re waiting for news on our new gardening plot for the fall planting we’re planning.
