{saturdays in the garden – volume two}

8 Apr

some updates on my community garden…


 

my uncle helped me make repurpose some materials and make these trellises for my peas and cucumbers. last year, thanks to a good friend, i learned a lot about vertical gardening… particularly, how it helps in maximizing space. since my plot is only 4 x 8, i was adamant about making sure to get the most food i could growing in there.

in particular, peas and cucumbers. they were the most fun to grow last year, and i had quite the bounty. not to mention the taste – so fresh and delicious!

i do love my garden!

another shot of my plot and trellises…

i was super happy when i found these pretty butterflies playing in my plot the other day…


 

here are a few shots from the “community days” wherein all the garden members and volunteers involved work on projects together. it’s one of my favourite parts about participating in this!

getting some weeding done and laying down mulch…

making pathways…

planting!!!

{that’s my plot – “f” – i originally thought it was “g” – but this is way more fitting, don’t you agree?! 😉

creating rows for community planting…

side story : as i was raking this area and prepping it for sewing seeds, a large wasp or hornet or yellowjacket {still not sure what he was, or what the difference between all of those are, but i just know he wasn’t a honeybee!} got a little mad because i must’ve disturbed his slumber… and he wanted me to know, because he stung me! it was kind of scary, as i hadn’t been stung since i was probably like 6 years old. but thankfully i discovered that i am not allergic. i just had a nice little red bump and bruise to follow, but i was fine. 

lambs ear, and ladybugs on mint…

see you next saturday!
