Backyard gardens have long flourished on the Upper West Side, growing small sprigs of basil, mint and other things to put in your mojito. We have even seen melons growing in a bike lane median.
But in these strange times, one local took things quite a bit further.
Someone has apparently been growing corn in a plant bed on 101st Street between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive. The sign on it appears to say “please no walk.” But the gardener shoudl be worried about another potential problem, particularly given it’s not fenced off.
“I was walking my dog and lucky he didn’t pee on the harvest!” wrote Naomi Goldstein who took the photos.
Corny, but true.
(We hear the garden is maintained by a man in his 50s or 60s. If you know the person, we’d love to talk to them. Reach out at westsiderag at gmail!)
