Surprises in Our Community Garden Plot

Our Shiba Inu

The first visit of 2012 to our community garden plot at Howard Co. Conservancy on Saturday was inspiring. My husband phoned to tell me, “bring your camera we have broccoli and brussel sprouts growing!” The brussel sprouts were pea size at mid-fall and grew to edible size through the warm winter. I hope they taste good.

I also found parsley and lettuce sprouting at the edge of our plot. The soil was loose and easy to weed and turn. We planted sugar snap peas, turnips and beets. A community garden friend visited and shared some gardening tips. He told us about a less earthy tasting beet, the Touchstone Gold. Even our Shiba Inu dog reveled in the garden, digging his nose and wiggling his back into the fresh soil.
