Because we’re having a weekend of 100 degree weather and high humidity, I asked the Plot Against Hunger volunteers if they would start our weekly maintenance push earlier than usual. Dani was happy to oblige, and boy were we both hot by the time we finished!
Right before I left home this morning, I found that we might have acquired another garden for the summer since someone is going to have to be out of town until the end of the season. We went to take a look at it right away. It’s got raised beds and it’s really thriving. Its paths are a bit weedy, but its tomatoes and squash contributed to AFAC this morning.
It also has a lot of basil in it, which I’m sure AFAC clients and fellow gardeners will enjoy.
Dani tied up two problematic tomato plants in the small garden and we weeded the large garden.
All the gardens got a nice drink of water before we were done.
My own garden needs a little weeding, but seems to be doing fairly well except for the defunct beans. Not sure what’s wrong back there–may need to test the soil. Luckily the tomatoes and quash are thriving and the eggplants are blooming.
I also have some winter squash coming on (could it be that time???). I have “acorn” squash…
And something that I’ll need to go back to my seed packets to identify.* Ah, well, the mysteries of the garden are continuous. Stay cool if you’re in a hot place–and warm if you’re not!
