This summer we're participating through the College in a community garden project. Because the plots are huge, we're sharing ours with another couple. I think we'll still have more vegetables than 4 people can reasonably eat--provided the critters don't get to them first. There's a big fence around the whole thing, designed and built by students and faculty, but it's not going to keep out any self-respecting ground hog or rabbit. More photos of the project here, and of our plot here. With all the rain we've had lately, it's getting hard to tell the plants from weeds. Still the rain has gotten our seeds and plants off to a good start, and in exchange, I don't mind pulling some weeds.
