2008 a community garden oddity

This charmless fenced-off thing has been installed where an otherwise perfectly good open commons once was. It is what a golf-course is- artificial, man-made, people unfriendly, closed most of the time. in other words the opposite english landscape theory- But most regrettable it just look like " all tax-dollars and no soul". Notice the sign reads "for info and Plot Reservations..." is that cemetery talk? MB model of late is to pseudo privatize public spaces with concessions and such. The thing folks grow most in miami is old.

Here is a nice enough community garden in NYC... i like round things.
