I joined the Sharecropper and her friend Sara this morning at GalleryThe on Smith St to plant cucumbers. Then we came to my place to plant several varieties of heirloom beans (above). Then we went over to Lefferts Homestead where we put in some pumpkins, next to Christina Kelly’s Three Sisters plantings.
Sharecropper, also known as Leah Gauthier, installed one micro-farm parcel yesterday in Manhattan, and has a dozen more to go, in all five boroughs. Here’s Alicia Kachmar’s piece on the project.
Some of the varieties: French climbing, black valentine, marifax. The planters are made of stainless steel mesh.
