Artichoke, Courtland Place P-Patch June 2012
The Courtland Place P-Patch is located in the Mt Baker neighborhood of southeast Seattle, between 35th Avenue S & 36th Avenue S, near Courtland Place S. It sits on land owned by the Seattle Department of Transportation as right-of-way for S Spokane Street. Spokane Street is notoriously intermittent, starting & stopping more than a dozen times on its way from Lake Washington to Puget Sound. Here is a 1-block stretch covering 2,500 square feet. 25 plots are filled with identical, rectangular beds, each neatly contained with 2 x 6 inch boards. There are 2 picnic tables at the center of the garden, which is entirely enclosed by a sturdy fence & a wall of broken concrete. There are gates at both ends on the 2 avenues. This garden was established in 1999. The Estelle Street P-Patch is within easy walking distance & offers an interesting contrast in p-patch styles. Click here to see more Seattle P-Patches.
