So, as most of you should know, I'm a Chinquapin community gardener as of March of this year. I've been on the waiting list for years (literally. It's been 5 years) so I was excited to get a plot. The plots are good sized. They are approximately 15 feet by 20 feet. Needless to say, I've taken my time to fill the plot with vegetables, partly because we had a cold spring. Some of my plants are doing better than others and I've found that part of the garden drains into my plot which is a bit of a problem, but my lettuce seem to thrive on being "swamp" lettuce so there's that. I'm a little nervous about this summer. We're already going to get "slop" from the first Tropical Storm of the season and I'm a little worried about my garden's ability to drain itself. But they are plants and it is Virginia where everything that can, will grow.
