#548: Nantucket Community Garden

Not everyone on Nantucket has a yard.
Lack of a yard is no obstacle to an island gardener,
we have a 40 plot community garden
out by Bartlett's Farm.
Which currently smells like honeysuckle.

Some gardens are elaborately structured.

Others, not so much.

It's a place for experiments--
will tomatoes grow better in a black tote?
Check back in August.

Is  black plastic better for keeping weeds at bay?

Or mulch?

Or hay?

The Colorado potato beetles have arrived,
but with many helpers, they get picked off quickly.

Veggies, flowers, community, whimsy.

The robin approves.
