Midsummer’s Eve Celebration in the Gardens

What a delightful night in the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens as about 50 gardeners and families gathered to celebrate the first night of summer and the one year anniversary of the gardens.

It’s hard to believe that only one year ago, the garden was just getting underway with the construction of raised beds. Now, we have plots in three different sizes, a lovely pergola, a beautiful gardener’s shed, a Monarch butterfly habitat, a grandparent’s garden, a fairy garden and 72 gardeners who help make the experience terrific.

Tonight was our first potluck and so many delicious offerings were available. Thank you to all who made this a success. This garden has a wonderful community for which I am  very grateful.

Our next potluck will be in July when the garlic is harvested.  It will be our Vampire Slayer feast.  Recipes should have at least some garlic as an ingredient.

Until then, see you in the gardens, Natalie
