Excerpt:

“I thought it was a good community thing,” said Meegan, who had to plant the herbs and veggies as part of the planter “adoption” process, and was surprised at how fun it was.

“It’s in the blood,” he joked, noting that members of his Irish family are good gardeners.

The planters — 38 in all — are situated in front of businesses along Austin and Ridgeway avenues, and are filled with a variety of edible plants. Right now, the blueberries are starting to ripen, Swiss chard is ready for picking and you can already snip off some leaf lettuce and purple bush beans.
