Urban Gardening Update

Aug 7, 2017

Kristie Ennis

Last month, I shared my experience in planting a small garden in my new, much smaller living space. I have had more success than not, although I will say that I lost two of my cucumber plants to the maintenance crew (wacky weed-eaters!) and one parsley plant to a downpour of epic proportions. My tomatoes, peppers, lavender, rosemary, cilantro, and one lonely cucumber are doing well. I harvested three super hot jalapenos this weekend! I hope to make salsa by the end of August. Here is another article about how lots of people utilize community gardening plots in the most unlikely places to grow plants from their own cultures in New York City. Stay tuned for more updates!
