How does the garden grow

A little oddly, if you want to know the truth. The CRC Community Garden is going as well as can be expected the first year, but I have learned some things.

1. Do not plant tomato plants so close together. It is now a jungle and I am having a hard time actually finding the tomatoes. When I do, they are often past their prime, shall we say.

2. Try to time your tomatoes and basil so they are ready to harvest at the same time. My dreams of fresh tomatoes and basil for a caprese salad have not materialized, sad to say.

3. Never, under any circumstances, let your cucumber vine climb up the back of the trellis. If one picture is worth a thousand words, then I think this says it all.

About CRC Nashville

Who are we? We are literally two chicks - Catherine Mayhew and Betsy Everett, and a warehouse - the Community Resource Center (CRC). In short, CRC is a non-profit organization that provides household goods, furniture, and appliances to people in desperate need. Think of us as Robin Hoods – without the stealing. Catherine is a former journalist and Betsy is a marketing chick. We are both devoted to acquiring stuff – good stuff, no junk – because that’s what our most fragile citizens deserve. If you have metal desks, televisions that don’t work or underwear you don’t want anymore, don’t give it to us. We’ll sneer at you. If you are companies that have excess primo stuff like furniture in good condition, school supplies, personal hygiene items or pretty much anything else, we’ll be your new best friends.
