My apartment complex has a community garden that I currently have 2 plots in. There are several large areas that have gone unclaimed and are now covered with small weeds. I was thinking of staking off some of this space and planting... something, not sure what though.
I live in western MA, zone 5. I love potatoes (I'm Irish, how could I not? haha) and was thinking of putting in some Yukon Golds. I am already growing Russets in one of my other plots. Or maybe some type of red potatoes. Or perhaps some eggplants? I saw some starters at Whole Foods the other day that had been marked down drastically. Or maybe some small sugar pumpkins? If I got them germinated indoors and in the ground ASAP, I would be within the 100 days it takes for them to mature. Our average first frost around here is October 17.
So as you can see, my ideas are all over the map, but any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
