Growing Season

organic seed packs

S O O N . . .

I picked up these seed packs a few days ago. I share a community garden plot with a family who lives down the hall from me. The community garden is right behind our building, and I can see our plot pretty well from our third floor kitchen window.

Soon, we’ll get word about a spring clean-up weekend from the garden coordinators, and we’ll all be out there cleaning up the ravages of winter and getting ready for a new growing season.

Last year at this time was my first time with a plot in the garden. I can’t even describe how I grew to love going down to the garden and picking fresh arugula for my lunch. We had a lot of vegetables and herbs, but the tangy arugula was my favorite. Drizzle with some olive oil and squeeze half a lemon over it, and wow.

Watering the garden early in the morning, when the city was just partly stirring: also a favorite.

Here’s a poster I designed last year (even though we did not have fiddleheads in our garden).

Hi there. I’m Boston-based digital artist Paula Ogier. In this blog I write about about my art new works, projects in process, life in Boston, inspirations, ideas, and creative challenges. I live and work in Boston's South End neighborhood, in the enclave known as the SoWa Art + Design district. I'm fond of big cities, architecture, great imaginative spaces, food & drink, gardening, wandering around the city on foot, binge-watching well written shows, talking to cats, and of course, making and experiencing art.
