Growing strong

4 Aug

The garden is definitely hitting its peak. For the past few workdays, we have been raking in Sun Gold cherry tomatoes and now larger Brandywine and Black Prince tomatoes. We’re also harvesting many jalapeños and bell peppers.

We took the mustard greens and arugula out of the garden to make space for some fall planting – hopefully kale, lettuces, broccoli and more. This time around we will build cages for the beds being planted in anticipation of the squirrels’ predilection for the sweet and tender young greens.

We have harvested enough produce to merit a canning session. Contact penngarden@gmail.com if you have surplus produce and/or you’re interested in spending some time canning salsa and other items on Friday afternoon. Also, we will be out at the garden on Saturday morning doing some maintenance and building cages, contact penngarden@gmail.com if you can help out.

Tuesday workdays will continue throughout August but will now begin at 6.30 pm. Join us!
