This year, after waiting three years, I was finally able to get a victory garden plot at the Belmont Victory Gardens at Rock Meadow in Belmont, Massachusetts. I was lucky enough to get a plot this year. It was one that had been abandoned and I needed to do a lot of work to fix it up, but it’s all planted and I’m growing tomatoes, cabbage, peppers, swiss chard, broccoli, kale, lettuce, rhubarb, and a whole bunch of herbs.
As I’m trying to do as many performances as I can this summer (Somerville Porchfest, Medford Porchfest, Arlington Porchfest and a Spy Pond After Work Concert), I figured I’d say thank you to the gardeners of Rock Meadow and give a concert from my garden plot, as there’s a nice place to sit in the shade right next to my garden, and it should be a fun time. I’ll be singing a number of my original songs, as well as some sing alongs. I’m in Plot #119, which is a bit up the hill from the main garden. Look for the little plot of trees, and listen for the music!
