Fresh Food Bountiful at Community Garden

TJ is cooking the mashed potatoes for dinner. He called into the garden to find some fresh herbs to add. Tasted them all before deciding on garlic chives, mint and basil.

The first lemon ripens on the trees planted last July when the garden opened.

The rains have made the soil ready for new seedlings.

Older plantings are becoming bountiful once more.

The view from the composting area shows one side of the garden with evening shadows falling.

The garden has been open now for about eight months and members are learning all the time time about the soil, plantings and the weather.

Sharing ideas with other garden members is an important aspect of being part of a community garden.

How delightful, fresh herbs from the garden. Our snow has finally melted, so I can plant again, but lemons don't grow in New Jersey. Enjoy your garden.

It's so important for children to be involved with growing and preparing food. Young people gardening and growing their own food is going to be so good for food in the future.
