I'm not sure this list is still active. I certainly haven't received
anything in a while.
I manage about 200 plots in two gardens for our garden program in Lehigh
County, PA. Two years ago we switched from seasonal plots to year-round
plots. Under the seasonal system, all fencing, stakes, etc were removed
every fall, the whole garden tilled, and plots remarked each spring. Last
year was the first full year under the new system. New the gardeners can
keep their fencing, raised beds, etc, plus they can get much sooner in the
spring then under the old system. In general the gardeners are happy.
One of the issues that has arisen is the appearance of the plots over the
winter. One of the gardens in quite visible from a busy road, and one of
our commissioners has received a few complaints about the unkempt
appearance. The gardener right on the corner has an old pickup truck cap he
uses to store supplies under, and has received specific complaints. I do
not want to try to get into regulating aesthetics, however, my boss says we
have to do something. Does anyone out there have an example of a workable
rule that addresses this?
