I lived in Park Slope for 13 years before moving to Flatbush. The Baltic Street Garden, facing busy 4th Avenue, is a garden I knew of but never got to visit while I lived there. Driving along 4th Avenue during the summer, it's hard to miss. The two-story Campsis radicans, the native Trumpet Vine, qualifies this as a 50 mile-per-hour garden.
The interior of the garden used to be screened from the street by hedges. Although you can now see the garden from the sidewalk and street, it's a different experience viewing it from the inside.
The plots are large, raised beds. Gardeners grow a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs and ornamentals.
Some glam shots.
Peaches were falling off this tree. Perfect fuzz.
Even the "necessaries" were photogenic.
I got a kick out of this sign just inside the entrance. That's just how I feel. They missed a view of my "love to hate" though. What would you add to their list?
