As any apartment dweller knows, sufficient space for gardening is a rare commodity. If you're lucky, you have a balcony or patio where you can leave out a few potted plants or window boxes. For the rest of us, we're lucky if there's an extra inch of concrete between the doormat and the front step.
Being in the latter category, a few designers here at Colorbök banded together and proposed the idea of turning an empty spot of land in front of our building into a community vegetable garden!
For weeks during our lunch hour, we worked the earth, pulled weeds, and prepared the soil for our plants, dreaming of the summer months when we would be able to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Looking back, as you'll soon see, it's hard to believe it's even the same land!
In addition to the green beans, lettuce, and zucchini (which, by the way, are producing GIANTS!), there are also a plethora of tomato plants, basil, cilantro, parsley, red pepper, kale, and spinach.
To say the least, we are extremely proud of our garden and all the hard work we put into it.
It's been a rewarding summer so far, and we can't wait to plan next year's garden! Happy gardening!
