Community gardens

I'm always interested in community vegetable gardens. They come in all sorts - places with individual plots as well as communal gardens, where everyone pitches in.

This garden, in the Montford area of Asheville, NC, falls in the second category. I was encouraged on a late fall visit. All sorts of greens were growing in an unheated hoophouse, as well as under row covers, and garlic and onions have been planted.

And cover crops of legumes and grains were flourishing on overwintering rows.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
