My Garden?

Weather permitting, here is the site of my crosstraining activities for tomorrow (Saturday). The garden is in a garden club with ~79 other gardens in Weingarten, a town about 11K/7M from where we live. We lease the 280 square meter plot from the club, which in turn leases it from the German Railroad. Our house only has a small lot without any garden (pictures to come?), so we enjoy having the chance to get outside in the garden club on the weekends.

The main advantage of the garden (for me) is that it is located about a mile from some good hill training resources (pictures also to follow in the future).

So for you green-thumb types, what do we grow in our garden?

Well, when I'm not too busy running we have:

Blackberries, raspberries, red currents, black currents, gooseberries, strawberries, red rhubarb, peppermint, peaches, zucchini, summer squash, winter squash, butternut squash, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, carrots, red beets, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumbers, green beans, eggplant, dill, assorted other herbs, and whatever else that I forgot.

When I busy running we have:

Potatoes, peppermint, butternut squash, weeds and anything else that you might find mixed in between ;-)

You're making me feel guilty. It's mid-March and I haven't even thought about what I'm going to plant this year. Typically, I'd have started seeds at least a month ago. This marathon training has cut into my garden. :)
May have to resort to some seedlings from the nursery.
Looks like it's a fun way to garden with a community. Have a fun day!!!
I love a good garden. We don't have one since we moved here, except for flowers and a few herbs that is.

I am very envious of yours.
my dad had a garden when I was a kid, and I loved helping him with it. What a great community!
Oh I'm so jealous!!! I only have a little balcony...Way to be self-sufficient! Your garden sounds wonderful. Pies, gardens...there are depths to Jack we haven't even begun to plumb!
