Plotting the PlotPosted: May 12, 2010
Some scheduling conflicts and a spate of cold, rainy weather have prevented us from doing any more work on our newly-acquired plot at the Flatbush Community Garden, but we have been thinking about what to plant once we get in there (hopefully this weekend).
We’ve got a 4 by 8 foot plot to work in, and a lot of choices to make. I’m thinking that it might be fun to grow a few stalks of corn, but I’m not sure if those might take up a bit too much real estate. We might make another attempt at strawberries, despite being burned on multiple occasions – most recently when we came home to find that heavy winds had dashed our poor little plant to the ground.
Some other options include: pole beans, broccoli rabe, carrots, cucumber, fennel, greens, melons, chard squashes, and radishes. My head is spinning.
Internet public, what should we plant?
