This weekend I finally got to see my new community garden plot. Or rather a field with roughly tilled ground that we spend several hours measuring and staking plots that are 14feet by 12 feet deep; laying out red mulch for walkway so everyone knows where to walk and where the plots are; raking out weeds and pulling out rocks before anything could be done. This is no where near what I was hoping it would be but I'm happy that it's free to use, and since someone else declined their plot at the last minute I asked and was given 2 plots! So of course I started on them right away. I had two hay bales so I took 4" thick layers and did the perimeter of the garden, separating my area from neighbors and covering back of the garden near fencing to prevent weeds from overtaking the area. So after few hours of raking, cleaning, weeding and mulching with hay this is what it looked like - not very attractive.
