early spring at the community gardens
from coney island we drove out to the rockaways this afternoon, with a stop at floyd bennett field. the community gardens located there were just waking up for the season, and you could sense the early spring excitement of dozens of urban gardeners just by looking at the neat rows of dark mounded loam and straightened pathways. every plot was different and felt full of potential. it must be a fantastic jungle by july.
