Our Community Garden


My corn plot, predicting around 60+ ears of corn from this one.
This is our second year, with a all Organic community garden and we are having a blast. My son and I live in a condo, so there is no back yard to grow a garden in. I found many places to garden as a community here in the Denver metro area. This year we obtained two plots and planted double then last year. I drive 10 minutes everyday to water, weed & harvest the two plots. This year I planted some new things and excited too see how it all comes out. I'll create another post when I harvest some of my largest plants. I wanted to show you a little tour of our plots.

Vertically growing watermelon, to have better use of my space. Created a sling from pant hose for the watermelon to hang in

Cuttable flowers for my vase at home, Pumpkin vines have three pumpkins so far. I made two mounds of them and recently cut all vines back to focus its growing energy on the fruits.




I'm also vertically growing my cucumbers, so much easier

Golden Green Beans

I have two zuchinni plants, Bell Peppers, Lettus for salads, broccoli


My son finds quite places to play and have time to himself with nature


Starting to harvest quite a bit now on a weekly basis, saves money in produce!
