The Valley City Community Gardens are warming up for their fourth season, and for those who are itching to get their hands dirty, space is filling up rapidly. As of Thursday, eight 20 by 20 foot plots were still available to rent for the season at the gardens, located west of Riverside Gardens, just off of Tenth Street Southwest.
â€śThe soil out there is really nice right now,â€ť said Ellen Bjelland, Garden Steering Committee chair. â€śIt had alfalfa on it previously and people worked it a lot last year. Theyâ€™re in good shape.â€ť
