Isn’t it so refreshing and wonderful to eat vegetables fresh from your garden? I have often longed for a day when I could have a backyard to grow a little vegetable garden in; potted plants on the porch have not been quite as rewarding.
I was so excited when I recently learned that the City of Charlottesville offers community garden plots. For only $40.00 a year you can rent a 30×30 plot of land to garden in either Azalea Park or Meadowcreek Gardens. You can secure one of these plots beginning February 22nd by signing up at City Hall on the Downtown Mall. They will give you a map of the plots and you can pick the one that best suits your needs. Wouldn’t it be so fun to share a plot with a friend, or to bring your children to help with the watering?
Anyone have good gardening references that would be helpful for me as I begin this adventure?
