“Grown in a community garden in SW DC”



“We have 2 raised beds that we enjoy growing our eats in- in Eckington. We harvested lettuce for a few months, culminating in a day where we harvested 57 small heads of lettuce (lots of which was washed and given to friends and neighbors)…Also, here is the season’s garlic harvest and an average week of kale, mint and burgundy beans.The tomatoes and peppers are raging so our dinners will all include purple beans, bell peppers and tomatoes for the foreseeable future.”

  • Would be great if folks included the variety of tomatoes they are growing – I’m curious what several of these are. Mexico Midgets?

  • On the Eckington tomato pic, the big tomatoes are Abe Lincolns- then there are romas, sun sugars, sungolds – and one other type of cherry tomatoes that were planted last year and returned as a volunteer plant this year…
