City Local Trivia

I was editing a piece for this week’s paper and looked up the term “P-Patch” in the dictionary. It wasn’t in there. Weird, right? I discovered that P-Patch is a phrase particular to Seattle. Hmm. I asked a coworker from California if she had heard it before she moved here—she hadn’t. Who knew?
Apparently, the P stands for Picardo Farm in Wedgwood, the original local community garden. Fun fact: There are now over 50 P-Patches in Seattle.
