This morning, garden volunteers Sarah, Jane and Ben helped weed the large and small Plot Against Hunger gardens. The small garden has turned into Jane’s baby this year as she takes care of the eight tomatoes planted there, five of which started at her house as seedlings. We also have peppers and eggplants in the small garden as well as thyme and oregano.
The large garden has had a bit more trampling, this time from maintenance people working on the light pole. I concentrated on weeding our outside border and deadheading flowers. Sarah and Ben weeded out the inside, where we were also able to harvest a nice bunch of golden beets to take to AFAC.
In my own garden, things are still in relatively good order. Tomatoes are coming on.
The squash seem to be doing well and I harvested some more kale this week. Soon I’ll have chard to harvest, too. Tomorrow I’m off to the Illinois farmlands to visit family, so if I’m not visiting blogs as often as usual, it’s because I’m visiting elsewhere in person! I hope you all have a great week.
