My community garden plot is nestled in the west end of the city. This is a space I use to test ornamental plant hardiness. Gardens surrounding my small plot boast a mind-bending assortment of food, cucumbers, corn, herbs, garlic and of course, tomatoes. The size of the garden plots vary but in general, they are roughly the same size as a single parking spot. Needless to say, the landscape in the neighbourhood has changed dramatically, c’est la vie.
