A Plot in the Garden

When M and I were in Pittsburgh for Passover last weekend he took me to the Homewood Community Garden, which is in the Homewood Cemetery around the corner from his parents house. This is the community garden that gave him the idea that we should approach The Woodlands Cemetery and Trust in Philadelphia to see if they would be interested in having a garden on their grounds (they were!).

This garden is huge, and the plots are on average about 20' by 20'. Each one is individually fenced with 6' or higher fencing (we saw three deer while we were there). It doesn't officially "open" until April and it "closes" in October, so we only got to see the infrastructure and post-snow state of the garden. But there are some really interesting plots that I want to share with you anyway. Enjoy!

well hello, infrastructure!

it looks like they have some deer issues, perhaps?
