Early May in the Garden…

Some of you may have already seen these on our facebook page, but I thought it would be fitting to welcome our new friends with a look around the garden. These were all taken earlier in the week, and as you can see, we’re off to a good start on the 2012 season.
Yukon Gold Potatoes.
Lettuce with a companion row of radishes.
We’re not all about vegetables at Hardacre Community Garden. Here is one of our raspberry bushes, and we hope to eventually turn the grassy hillside in the background into a fruit orchard.
A view of our south field, which will be planted soon, and the historic Hardacre house in the background.
Our beautiful welcome sign painted a few years ago by Austin Coss as part of a Tipton High School art project. (We’ve since settled on the name Hardacre Community Garden due to its historical connotation, and our openness to serving neighbors in surrounding communities.)
We’ve added a new flower bed to the grounds this year, and thanks to the hardwork of Amy Lutz and her Tipton High School landscaping class, there’s a lot more color to be seen around the gardens.
