Community Garden Vegies

I am a member of `Varsity Lakes Community Garden. The beautiful cabbage above is from the community section of this garden. The community section is where any member can garden and take vegetables. We are all encouraged to leave enough for the next person, for example by just taking the outside leaves. This small cabbage glowing in the sun today shows just how well this principal is working.

 Above are two blossoming strawberries from my own patch. Note the computer disc on a piece of wire close by. This is the way we are learning to outwit the crows who also love the strawberries.

The herb spiral sits under the gums at the entrance of the garden. Today it was glowing in the dappled sunlight. All members can pick the wide variety of herbs grown in the spiral.
