Metolius Community Garden

Metolius Friends Community Garden

Here in Metolius Oregon we have something special going on, a community garden!
Everyone is welcomed to this community garden which was started a few years ago to help the community fight the hunger issues that have plagued the community in these hard economical times.
I personally like to go over and just see how things are growing and changing. Every time one either grows their own garden or visits someone else's garden no two times is ever the same! Nature has a way of making sure of this.
Of course being a photographer I speak mainly through photographs so , lets get on with the photography!
I like the looks of these just because!
Corn
Have some corn!
fresh beans
I have a tendency to eat these right off the vine here in my own garden!
squash
These are good in stir fries.
zucchini
I am a huge fan of Zucchini! Add them in veggie dinners,fried,salads ,breads yummie!
rhubarb
Rhubarb for those who like it. We even have one in our garden!
tomato
Smell great!
yellow squash or crookneck
Tasty!
flowering squash
Please contact if you plan to take these flowers for your soups,salads etc. Some folks do not know these are used in your recipe.
catnip
If you would like the Catnip you need to say something. In our area Catnip as well as other species of the mint family grow VERY well. Thus, such plants as this Catnip are plucked and thrown out as a weed. Mind you, this Catnip is at or coming very near its mature age,meaning the seeds will produce more and more plants. Bottom line is, there is time to say something if you want such a plant. Caution if wanting to grow this on your property!





The Metolius Friends Community Garden can be found on the Metolius Friends Community Church grounds at 575 Hood Ave Metolius Oregon 97741.
