Cranston Community Garden — Week One for Our Little Patch!

Our garden started out looking kind of small and scruffy, but after a week’s time, there was significant growth.

We planted cucumbers, lettuce, spring mix, spinach, and tomatoes.

We bought all our starter plants at the Pawtuxet Village Farmer’s Market, so this is a very local experiment in community gardening. I hope our plants thrive, and don’t get eaten by any small hungry animals. Here’s to community spirit and thanks to Steve Stycos and all of the other members of the Cherrywood Community Garden starter group. You can friend us on Facebook here.

    Excellent! Given the extent of empty urban space in usually poorer neighborhoods, gardens such as this should be encouraged. It is amazing how much really good food can be grown in relatively small space. I would suggest you need to add beans and peppers. The beans do well from seed. You folks have the added benefit of rain, lacking here, so you should do well.

      Thanks, Donald. I will see if we can squeeze in some beans…as for peppers, not enough demand in this house for them, though a few plants would still be good.
