What’s in your garden this year?
Asked and answered at the Swarthmore Community Garden
(Harvard and Yale avenues) during May and June.

I live right there so every morning I come over and cut greens and inspect. Things are going wild. We have tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, kohlrabi, beans, basil, squash. This is our third year.
My wife likes cherry tomatoes, so that’s what I grow. Also, basil, oregano and parsley. I’ve been gardening here for many, many years.
It’s my first year here, and I’m doing a medley of old favorites: hot peppers, tomatoes, basil, parsley, Asian greens, green beans, and Armenian cukes.
We’re getting a late start — it’s our first year in this garden — but we’re going to be doing the same old stuff: tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini.
Hudson: And watermelon.
Grey: And cantaloupe.

Some of the usual — tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, kale. And a lot of wacky stuff. … perennial herbs like mountain mint, bloody dock, marjoram, echinacea, sage. Red, green and yellow cherry tomatoes, including a red one named for my grandmother, Eva.
