Last week’s Photo Challenge was like the Bernie meme: It showed up everywhere.
People thought the photo of a lonely looking fence — 2 sections surrounded by empty space, protecting nothing — was all over town.
The Wakeman athletic fields, North Compo Little League diamonds, Longshore lower parking lot, back of Town Hall, Imperial Avenue lot — so many places that poor fence could be.
The photographer’s name — Lou Weinberg — should have given it away, though. He’s the chair of Westport’s Community Gardens.
That’s the big, beautiful space just south of Long Lots Elementary School. Coincidentally, it’s the former site of the Jaeger family greenhouses — but Jalna Jaeger says the fence was not there when they owned the property.
It’s where families with little children, folks in their 80s and everyone in between grows fruit, vegetables, flowers, herbs and grasses, in all kinds of designs and configurations.
Correct answers came from Diane Bosch, Elaine Marino, Joyce Barnhart, Bronwyn Cousins and Phil Rubin. Like everyone else — green and kiss-of-death thumbs alike — they anxiously await the arrival of spring.
