the beets, turnips, and collard greens; in the middle--celery


the garden at the end of july...


the garden in early-june...

this is the way the garden looked when i left for my bike tour across can see collards, kale, chard, turnips, etc., coming up in the circles.....and tiny tomato and pepper plants on the right...


start of the garden 2009

at the behest of a former student, laura, who is my co-gardener this year, we redesigned with circles that sort of form the shape of the mathematics symbol for infinity...i like it. my previous garden design was haphazard and not really thought-out, just slapped together...inside the circles will be all sorts of greens and other vegetables. tomatoes/peppers will still dominate the garden, to the south of the sidewalk...
