After time away over Labor Day weekend, I came back to gardens in the midst of a late summer burst of bounty. They are also starting to look a bit end of season. The Plot Against Hunger garden has been a success this year with the help of some great volunteers. I don’t have all the figures yet, but the small, exposed plot produced more than a hundred pounds of vegetables for AFAC, counting eight pounds last Thursday.
For the time being, we’ve also acquired another small plot in the garden that has some marvelous tomatoes and some very large scallions. On Saturday we met to weed our outside plot and cleaned up this one as well.
Meanwhile, my own garden is beginning to produce quite a few of my favorite late summer vegetable, and as with my beans, the variety turned out to be a bit of a surprise when fruit started forming.
