Cages in progress

9 Jul

We spent Tuesday and Thursday of this week devising and implementing our squirrel defense plan. The garden now has four beds protected by chicken wire cages. Hopefully we will have plenty of tomatoes unsampled by squirrels as a result.

Yesterday, we had our heftiest harvest to date with two fennel bulbs clocking in at 3.5 lbs.! The jalapeñoes are coming in now as well and the mustard greens, of course, keep coming.

Another very exciting development is the arrival of our shed this coming Tuesday. We will finally have a place to store our tools! We will celebrate this at our workday on Tuesday at 6 pm where, along with other tasks, we will be working on building more cages. Join us – we will have vegetables to send home with volunteers.
