A recent comment on a post reminded me that it’s probably time for an update on where I am with scoring a garden plot for this year. The fact is, there’s not much to say right now. I have put my name on the waiting list, I assume, for the garden I identified, but don’t have any confirmation of this from Oakland Parks and Rec.
Regardless, all existing gardeners have until early March to get their money in for the next year, so I won’t hear anything until after that. They won’t know how many spots are open until they know who’s returning and who’s abandoned their plot.
What I don’t know for sure is whether I’ll be offered a plot at an alternate garden if there isn’t space at the one I chose. There’s no information about that on the community gardening website, and in emails with the coordinator, I haven’t been able to to glean an answer on that particular question.
So it’s a waiting game for now…and a hoping game, too.
