Basehor resident Pat Rogers examines her plot at the Basehor Community Garden on Monday morning. In the foreground are sweet corn stalks that have sprouted since Rogers planted an array of vegetables about a month ago. The garden, located on the north end of Basehor City Park, is open for its first growing season.

Plots at the Basehor Community Garden, in its seventh year of existence, are now available for the 2018 growing season. Last year, organizers started to convert the 10x21 ground plots into new 5x10 raised beds. Officials plan to do the same this spring. Plot sizes in 2018 will be 1-4x8 for $15 or 2-5x10 raised beds for $25. The garden still will have a few 10x21 ground plots, but they have already been reserved for the people who had them last year.
On Monday morning, Stephanie Swenson stood next to Pat Rogers, cup of coffee in hand, as they looked out at their vegetable gardens.
