It was a sunny day yesterday with light showers in the evening. Did it get any of you thinking of that seed catalog and what you'll be planting for your kitchen garden? I came across the steepest Seattle P-Patch location I've seen yet, a terraced slope between 14th and 15th Avenues S with fifteen 10' x10' plots. This community garden has the added bonus of mountain views of both the Olympic and the Cascade ranges. There is usually a waiting list for a P-Patch plot in one of the 55 community gardens. The first P-Patches began in the 1970s and more are being developed by neighbors around town all the time, so if you'd like information on where you might get those lovely lettuces, potatoes, carrots and beans going, click here.
