Good corner for composting, useful earthworms, access to comfrey leaves, and good soil. I have already composted and harvested and spread compost from a batch of weeds I pulled when I got the plot in April; it is ridiculously quick. Slugs tho ... I'm ambivalent about slugs.

Working water tap and hose are not far from bed. Toolshed is very convenient (right across path!) and contains some useful tools including larger items I couldn't really realistically buy. Usable porta-potty outside garden gate. Parking nearby. Picnic table under fig tree that is great for climbing. Great set-up, some issues but really good features.

Mostly polite neighbors in the other community beds, speaking at least 4 different languages.

Plants growing at the moment: pole beans, bush beans, tomatoes, corn, radishes, chamomile, lemon cucumber, melon, kale, chard, last year's mystery brassica going to seed, thyme, spinach shoots, garlic, strawberries, basil, basil, oregano, kinnikinnick, stevia, one tiny carrot leaf in the whole row, maybe more strawberries.

Already harvesting: radish thinnings, snips of thyme, foraged greens from neighboring untended beds, and STRAWBERRIES OM NOM.

\o/ Garden!

I'm thinking of planting comfrey. Need a big pot to put the sucker in or I'll never get it out again, but... comfrey leaves.. the temptation is real.

Mmm, thyme and greens and strawberries. Good stuff.

That's cool. Both the deer-repellent and the not setting seed.

shall have to inquire next time I'm at the place with the comfrey.

I always feel good when I'm around groups where multiple languages are spoken, even if I can't understand them. It lets me know that this is a space where that is okay.
