Artichokes and all!

We started our Spring season this year with about 50 associate gardeners planting everything from red potatoes, lettuce of all types and colors, cherry to heirloom tomatoes, bush beans and the most attention getter has to be ARTY our artichoke! Arty is about 4 feet tall, grown from a seed last year. It came through all our NE Florida freezes last winter and now has 6 baby artichokes. We are having a blast watching it grow.

Are there any other business community gardens out there? We would like to hear from you . If you want to start a community garden at your place of employment, we can tell you how we did it and the great benefits it has provided us here at Nemours.
