My community garden is one of my favorite places in the world. I feel so at peace so easily in the garden. I love watching the plants grow, getting to harvest Watching the changing of the plants, growth, harvest, decay. I really enjoy my nightly watering ritual.
Photographing the garden has helped me notice details I might have otherwise missed. Like the light hitting a small yellow flower on my cucumber plant. Or the way another flower twists up as it prepares to give way for an acorn squash. Or just how photogenic a daily harvest can be. I've been really happy with my harvest this season and am looking forward to my fall crops (squash, carrots, onions, Swiss chard, and lettuce). Can only imagine how good my garden will be next year with all I've learned in my second season as a community gardener.
