Baptist Town garden

Derrick Washington builds a string ladder for the black-eyed peas growing in his garden at the corner of Young Street and Avenue A in Baptist Town, as his niece, Mariyah Foreman, 8, looks on. Washington says the peas will reach as high as he can build the ladder. He also grows squash, okra, collard greens, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, radishes, beets, and purple hull peas in his expansive garden. What he doesn’t eat, he blanches and flash freezes some and gives some away.
