The Beach 91st Street Community Garden is in full season. I wanted to share some photos of the delicious foods growing inside. But first, note the beautiful new fence that has replaced the plywood, which was barely standing for quite some time. Before…
After! The group organized a go fund me to help with the cost and members installed the fence last weekend. Thanks guys!
So what’s growing?
A few garden members are growning corn!
And red leaf lettuce.
Beautiful purple tomatoes… I believe these are indigo rose?
Japanese greens – I had to google this one:
The taste of mizuna has been described as a “piquant, mild peppery flavor… slightly spicy, but less so than arugula.” It is also used in stir-fries, soups, and nabemono (Japanese hot pots).
Sea of thyme.
In addition to the vegetable garden, members have planted florals – making the garden that much more beautiful and diverse!
