Gardening In Ashland

Welcome to the place in virtual reality where I will be sharing my experiences and observations as a lifetime gardener. Over the last quarter century, we’ve had gardens in each place we’ve lived in Ashland. For many of these years we have had one garden plot here at home and another garden plot at the Ashland Creek Community Garden.

I took the photo at left (click to zoom) at Plot #45 at the Southern Oregon University Ecology Center of the Siskiyous (SOU ECOS) community garden, situated in a secluded, sunny spot at the far western boundary of SOU’s campus. Our first year at this garden proved abundant; here you’re seeing our big, productive bamboo bean arch we built as a superstructure for our Kentucky Pole and Italian Romano beans.
