Thank You from Rich, the City Farm Steward

Hello out there! It’s good to know that we have some readers.

This little note is to say thank you for supporting the Community Land Trust at our annual Plant Sale. It was a pretty awesome weekend of hanging out with an ever-growing garden community. It’s so nice to know that our plants are going to good homes.

Here are a couple of photos I took recently. The first shows the greenhouse the morning of the Plant Sale. It was taken before all these starts were marched out to take over Linden Street.

This second photo was taken in the days following the Plant Sale, when the greenhouse was pretty empty. While it was cleared out, we took the opportunity to level the ground under the landscaping fabric and replace some the the ripped and torn pieces. It’s going to be a lot easier to walk around without tripping over rutted earth or potted plants. It looks pretty nice now with hot peppers and bitter melon eggplant growing in large pots.

In other news, the farmers’ market season starts next week for City Farm! We’ll be at the Armory Park market on Thursday evenings from 4:00 to 7:00 and at the Lippitt Park market on Saturday mornings from 9:00 to 12:30. Come by and keep me posted on how your plants are doing! I hope you have a great growing season.

—Rich
