Today was the second time this week I tried to visit the Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park. Unfortunately, just like the last time, Golden Gate Park was packed and there was no parking available anywhere near the Garden's entrances. From where I entered on 7th, all the way to 19th Avenue, not a single spot! Unbelievable! What I should have done, what I will do next time, is park outside the Park on Lincoln. And, no, I'm not going to take public transportation. I am not known for masochism.
Then I decided to visit the nearby Garden for the Environment. But there were people working, and the light was too bright for taking pictures...
I took a few anyway, along the sidewalk.
Then I remembered the community garden across the street that I made a mental note to explore.
So, that's what this blog post is about.
Don't let the spring-y look of recent blog posts fool you. It's not snowing, but it's still plenty cool. Definitely not vegetable-growing weather. Furthermore, as this garden is squarely in San Francisco's fog belt, where one might argue it is never vegetable-growing weather. At least not for summer vegetables.
Yet since we have no frost, we can grow greens all year. And that is just what many vegetable gardeners do.
I have not brought you to this garden to wow you, but we are here. So let's check it out.
Then I want to show you what I pulled over for on the way home:
