Like most home gardens in Arlington, the plot we gardened at 13 Addison Street for several years was mostly full sun. (There were no apologies for the soil, which couldn’t have been better.) Regardless, it seemed that the Robbins Farm garden was outperforming the 13 Addison Street garden in number of days to harvest.
So I looked for veggies in both gardens that were: 1) easy to determine when the first harvest occurred, 2) grown from seed sown outdoors at the same time in the season and 3) that were the same varieties from the same seed source.
Three veggies fit the criteria. And the results are significant, even if you factor in the more regular watering the Robbins Farm garden enjoys. I can’t wait to see how much faster the pole beans grow!
