No Room for a Vegetable Garden - Try a Community Garden: Containers, Planting Peas & Broccoli, Basic Tour


by Gary Pilarchik (The Rusted Gardener)
If you don't have room for a garden, try looking locally for a community garden. My plot, as seen in the video, is about 20' x 25' and costs me $40 a year. That is a bargain, as I get an endless supply of wood chips and water and the people there are wonderful. 
Community gardens have a beauty, I think on we gardeners can appreciate. The picture, to many, looks like a dump and the whole area of 60 plus plots looks like some strange post apocalyptic tent city. Through the gardener's eyes, we see trellises, planting space, creative ideas and an artist's canvas.  We can see what will be growing and blooming and the endless possibilities. It fills us with an energy and excitement many don't understands.
I will be doing a regular series about my community garden. It usually is a about 10-12 videos each year. The first one is a quick tour of my space and I cover many things. I don't go into depth with teaching but more cover gardening points. The goal is to show you a lot of things to stimulate ideas. 
In this video I show you basic container use, an easy way to amend raised bed soil to plant transplants, ways to plant peas in containers. trellising, greens planting and rabbit protection. Lots of ideas for your gardens!


Good Luck with Your Garden,
