The herbs have a home

Thanks to all those who came out for our workday yesterday! It was a great success and we finished with the work much sooner than we had anticipated. It was a beautiful evening to be out in the garden.

With a willing crew of volunteers we:

  • harvested 2.5 lbs. of mustard greens, .75 lbs. of radishes, .25 lbs of arugula, and .25 lbs of basil
  • weeded the beds
  • filled the herb boxes with soil
  • transplanted basil, dill, parsley, and thyme into the herb boxes
  • seeded beets, kabocha squash, scallions, cilantro, soybeans, bush beans, zucchini, carrots, calendula and mizuna
  • mounded soil around the potatoes

There are signs of yummy harvests to come in the garden: small cherry tomatoes that are still green, a couple tiny eggplants starting to form, and a minuscule tomatillo that was the subject of much photographic attention.

We will be having another workday next Tuesday and hope to see even more helpers out in the garden!
