For the last several years, there have been two community garden plots at Bowling Green churches.
The Bowling Green Community Gardens are coordinated through The Common Good, a non-profit organization of the United Christian Fellowship.
Two of the most dedicated volunteers were working Wednesday at the garden located at First United Methodist Church on East Wooster St. The other garden is located at Peace Lutheran Church on West Wooster St., near the Bowling Green fire station in that area.
Adam Vaughn serves as the manager/coordinator of the program, he is joined on a regular basis by Rene Tricou. Both are seniors at Bowling Green State University and dedicated to the gardens. The gardens have been function under this format since at least 2009.
Often times there are others who assist in the gardens, but both stress that these gardens are as the name implies for the community.

GRAND RAPIDS - Growing garden vegetables and flowers is not as most people might expect at Gardenview Flowers. The farm is an oasis of nature filled with garden items. It is tucked away along the former U.S. 24 in rural Grand Rapids.
The operation is run by father and daughter Jerry and Jenny Van Houtte, and the younger half of the duo could not be more proud of the quality of their merchandise.
Don't try to stop by their farm to buy their goods, rather, you will need to visit one of the farmer's markets. They sell on Wednesdays at Bowling Green and Thursdays in Perrysburg. You will also find their wares at Toledo on Saturday and in a couple of Michigan locales.
Right now, Jenny says their specialty orange cherry tomatoes are just ripening.
"These are so good, people just love them," she said as she popped one into her mouth.

A guide to popular home garden vegetable
Tomatoes:  Some like it Hot:  Some tomato varieties can ride the heat-wave with you, setting fruit even as the temperature rises.  Below are some basic terms, tips, types and a list of heat-set tomato varieties that like it "hot."
Tomatoes are the most popular vegetable in home gardens across America; most gardeners agree nothing tastes better than a home-grown tomato.
It's important to understand common tomato terms, often seen on tomato plant tags and the basics of growing tomatoes…. the more you know the better you'll grow. Now through mid-July, you can plant extra tomatoes for later harvests in fall, often right up to frost dates if you protect them overnight or harvest them green and ripen them indoors.
