Swedish Community Garden day 4

October 27th, 2016

Are tired of looking at the plots from the community garden in Sweden? I didn’t think so. We spent over an hour walking around these gardens enjoying each plot. Even with all the photos I took, it didn’t even scratch the surface of this fantastic space. Here are more of the lovely plots.

    I love how beautiful veggie gardens can be. I combine my flower garden with my veggie garden and it’s my favorite place to be.

    Susy, looks like you had an awesome time visiting all the Swedish gardens. Never a weed in sight. Wish my gardens looked like that. I attended a Mother Earth News Fair last weekend. One of the comments that Eliot Coleman said was, “We should never be weeding. We should be cultivating.” He says gardeners should stir the soil after the weeds have sprouted but not wait until the weeds are seen. I’m not sure he uses mulch but plants close enough that the plants shade the ground and therefore kills the weeds. He lives in Maine and has huge high tunnels that can be moved from one bed to another. It was quite a fascinating talk. I’ll probably never get to his level of efficiency but it does spark some thought.

    Have a great Swedish garden memories day.
