Plot 17-B (Aka “Patch of Heaven”)

One of the first things I discovered when we first moved to SLO was that we had a park with a Community Garden just 2 streets over from us. After snooping around a little bit, I tracked down the number for the local Parks and Rec department. For the last month or so I’ve been the proud owner of plot 17-B!  We’ve since re-named it Patch of Heaven.

Here is what it looked like when I took ownership:

The Love and I spent some time getting it spruced up a bit (me in the dirt, him on the fence), and now it’s looking a bit better.

From what I heard, the woman who had it before me was a master gardener – and had been the owner for the past 10 years. I’m sure the soil quality is pretty good, but I did turn it over (and get rid of as much grass as I could), and mix in some organic potting mix.

For fun I did spend about $30.00 or so worth of seeds, and threw things in the ground. This late i the game (I planted about 3 or 4 weeks ago) I am aware even with the lack of much of a frost season here – that the stuff might not do much, but hey – it was all experimentation.

The Love and I have plans to make it more raised bed style and do things ‘properly’ starting in the spring.
