On Saturday, I visited my friend and her new p-patch plot (community garden) in Seattle for 'opening day' of gardening season. Many new patchers were being introduced to the ways of a p-patch. Always looking for ideas (and as it was too rainy to play in my garden), I visited two other p-patches to be shared later.
This is a small p-patch surrounded by houses and a school. Many people know each other and were quick to introduce themselves to anyone they didn't
recognize. My friend's plot has the purple pansies left by the prior gardener. It is around 10 feet x 15 feet.
The tool shed shown is shared by the gardeners. You can see some of the larger plots here. The one in front of the shed is around 30 feet by 10 feet, with a narrow path in the middle. In the last picture shown, the upright growth along the stepping stone path is raspberries. On the other side of the stone path are stakes for the wonderful dahlias that will grow there. Happy Gardening, J!
