Before it starts to snow we decided we should clean up the garden. We hauled away 3 or 4 large bags of garbage, trimmed back some of the perennials and scattered milkweed seeds. There were cookies and coffee for the few hardy souls that showed up. Thanks to two young men (I didn’t catch their names) who helped us for a bit.
It looks nice now although we’ll have to do it again soon. It seems that since we aren’t out in the garden on a regular basis, people seem less conscious about disposing of their trash in the proper place. At least that’s my impression. Included are a couple of “after” photos.
There has been no noticeable building progress at the site. We may even get one more season out of the garden. Stay tuned. – Libby
The big excitement at our last garden workday on Sunday September 7 was our first harvest of potatoes. The pictures speak for themselves!
Sunday, July 27, we had our first picnic of the season. Obviously the hotdogs and turkey burgers didn’t come from the garden but many of the side dishes did. Enjoy the pictures.
Although not yummy to everyone, they certainly are to us. We harvested quite a few this week (Sunday, June 29). We dug up the spinach which had gone to seed and planted a bunch of tomatoes, a few zucchini and a cucumber. Hopefully by planting this late we’ve missed the deadly squash vine borer. There is still a ton of kale, chard and arugula. Don’t be shy.
Join us every Sunday (weather permitting) at 3 PM.
Thanks to rain and warm weather, the garden is bursting with spinach, arugula, swiss chard, cilantro, lettuce! Besides the usual maintenance (picking up garbage, weeding) we planted a few more carrots and beets. We also planted tomato and pepper seedlings that Michael got for free. Some of them look a bit sad, but hopefully with a little TLC they’ll pull through. Ernie worked on the potato bed. Next Sunday we plan to plant potatoes. We had such good luck last year.
Join us every Sunday at 3 PM. Newcomers always welcome.
It’s amazing what a little bit of sun and rain will do. The garden just popped over the past several weeks. Although a lot of the “popping” involved weeds, it still is nice to see all the green. We planted some more vegetables, mowed and weeded.
Join us pretty much any Sunday at 3 PM. It doesn’t hurt to check the sign on the fence first but we are usually there.
