Back in February, when the snow was still covering the ground, we started growing plants for the community gardens in Camden.

We ordered plugs of vegetable starts from a company called Kube Pak, in Allentown, NJ. The veggies come in a dense sheet and we transplant them out into larger cell packs so they have some room to grow.

Some of them went out to the community gardens this month, including a few chive and leek starts that went out to my own gardens in Philly (check out my post on Farm to Philly).

I spent hours in the greenhouse with the plants, watering, smelling, and just being in there while the snow was covering everything outside.

Now my little guys are all grown up and in the ground. How time flies!
