Fort Mason Community Garden - Day #1 at my garden plot

You might have read about my excitement at finally getting notice that, after over 7 years on a waiting list, a garden plot at the Fort Mason Community Garden had finally become available for me.

This afternoon was the time arranged for me to meet the membership volunteer, pay my fees, get an orientation around the area (I had no idea there was a club house area) and....choose my garden plot.

Two plots were available. Each plot is roughly 5' x 20' in size. One is in pretty much full sun, which in San Francisco could be a real benefit. The other is quite shady, with one end facing south and a side facing east so potentially receiving sun much of the morning; most of the plot is shaded by a good-sized pepper tree.

Pictures of the two plots are below. My question to you: which plot did I choose? The answer will be revealed tomorrow.

Lottie Kendall - I am so excited for you.  My guess is that you opted for the full sun plot.  I think that will offer you tremendous opportunities and varieties to choose for your garden!  Although the shaded plot might be a nice reprieve to enjoy gardening in the shade...I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow to see if I'm correct...

I can feel your excitement about all this, Lottie.  five feet by 20 feet is a nice little plot to grow some special things.

Maria Sapio - stay tuned for the big reveal tomorrow!

Myrl Jeffcoat and Gita Bantwal - so, take a guess - did I choose sun or mostly shade??

Lottie, you picked the one that gets the most sun. From the side by side photos my sense is that it is the plot on the right. 

So happy for your that your wait for the garden plot is now over.

Hi Lottie -- 100 square feet seems pretty generous.  I'm guessing you chose the sunnier plot.

Can they grow marijuana there legally?

Lottie, I can't guess because I am not good at guessing . I think it is the sunny side.

Sam Shueh - you win the prize for the funniest question!! Since Ft. Mason is on Federal Land, it probably wouldn't be a good idea....

Kathleen Daniels  Gita Bantwal and Michael Jacobs - choosing the sunny plot is the logical answer - stay tuned

Hi Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington - I think working my little garden plot will bring good balance to real estate and hiking.

Hi Lottie

It was fun to see the plots you could choose from although I already know from your latest post. How neat to actually have a choice! I'll be interested in reading more about your progress!

Gardening on a sunny spot would be logical, but not this particular one, overgrown with oxalis, Patricia Feager
