crops for my community plot

Planning the Garden

Before I map out what to plant where in my new home garden, I need to decide what will go in my community plot. I’ll be keeping my plot at least one more season, mostly because I planted my garlic there this fall (and also since I will stay on as the Garden Coordinator another year.)

I’m going to start a list here of crops that have done well in the plot. These are generally ones that aren’t susceptible to pests that thrive in a community garden. For example, late blight has been bad for our tomatoes. Bean beetles and cucumber beetles are prolific. And flea beetles have been bad for potatoes and eggplants.

List of crops to plant in my community plot:
Sweet potatoes
Butternut squash
Pumpkins

Broccoli, cabbage, kale
Radicchio
Onions, leeks
Lettuce
