Bio-vandalism?

Many of the plots have recently been “seeded” with mung beans.
mung beans about to sprout
Maybe a disgruntled sprouter who couldn’t wait (they look like they’ve been soaked for sprouting)? The beans are sprouting now and if you want to keep them they may grow to maturity, depending on the variety, but they don’t like the heavy soils of Oakvale Green so don’t expect much. They can be turned into the soil as added organic matter so no worries.mung bean plants with ripening seed pods

Update (Sept. 3): here are a few plants that i transplanted to a planter box at home:

New Gardens Sign

For those who haven’t seen it yet, the new OGCG sign is finally up.

Oakvale Green Community Gardens sign made from driftwood and mounted on side of garden boxThe wood was salvaged by Kathryn and Nicholas from the Outer Harbour Marina, an ex-gardener (and former manager of this web site) Amy Satherwaite burned the lettering and image into the wood, and it was finished (oiled) by Nicholas. Then the sign sat there and waited two years for the TTC to give us permission to put a sign up on their property (they wouldn’t let us mount it as a free-standing sign). Brian put the sign up. Thanks for all the great work!
