44 Onions

April 17, 2009

I’m beginning to see the benefits of the “community” part of community gardening. :)

The hubster and I headed over to our plot tonight to get restarted on our actual plot, instead of working the plot of the guy next to us. :)  When we arrived we saw one of the CDCG staff, Jenny, working her own plot in the corner across from us.  She said hello to us, and suggested we actually split up our half-plot a certain way to maximize its usage.  It was very helpful!  Then she excused herself to go get some onions in before nightfall.  The hubby and I measured out the plot, staked it and started turning over the soil.  It didn’t have any cover planted on it so it was much easier to turn over than Lev’s plot had been! The hubby decided to go over to see Jenny’s plot while I started picking rocks out.  He came back with 44 onion plants!  Jenny had too many and she offered them to us.

Onions!

Onions!

So I’ve planted the onions now and hopefully at least some of the onions will actually grow.  So exciting!  We turned over a bit more of the dirt and plan to do some more tomorrow.  We told Jenny we were going to Pigliavento’s to look for heirloom strawberry plants tomorrow and she said to pick her up a strawberry plant if we got any.  After 44 onions – hell yes!

This is our REAL plot

Yay for garden neighbors :)

    I am so jealous of this Chelle, honest. How did you find out about a local, coop garden?!

      Wow, it wasn’t that long ago but I totally don’t remember! Knowing me, I was probably googling and came across our local site…maybe you could google community gardens in your area and see if anything turns up!
