I shoot so many stories that I needed a place to share them all – so I started another blog! The Tasty F-Stops. I’ll be sharing my photo journals about farms, vineyards, restaurants, gardening, and anywhere I might travel that would be a beautiful or interesting subject.
Today’s post will be part of an ongoing series with my friend and chef, Deb Dubbs of Deb’s Kitchen.
Deb has been growing food in her community garden for over 20 years. I thought it would be very fun to document her garden for a year in all seasons.
Planting the Seedlings
The first thing, of course, will be the planting of her garden in spring.
Deb grew these little seedlings at home so she could keep a close eye on them every day. She then took them to the garden for planting in her community garden.
Deb doesn’t use pesticides, so critters nibbling her plants are a problem. Grasshoppers mainly. She has to cover her young plantings with a white gauzy material so they can get sun and air but are protected from the grasshoppers, who apparently have an eating disorder where they eat EVERYTHING in site.
This community garden is quite established, so several of the other plots had very interesting and beautiful plants growing, including tiny-baby grapes! I’d never seen grapes that had just sprouted. Sooo small and cute!
Here are some other tasty veggies and herbs from Deb’s garden and some of the other garden plots in the community.
Stay tuned for my next shoot at Deb’s garden.
