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!

Our first harvests

11 Jun

Now that we have the irrigation system running smoothly and have had plenty of warm, sunny days, the garden is looking really healthy! The first items harvested from the garden were radishes, arugula, and mustard greens. They are all spicy and delicious.

We’ll be harvesting more arugula and mustard greens as well as some herbs at our upcoming this workday, this Tuesday, June 15 from 6-8 pm. Join us for an evening outside as we sow seeds in empty beds and prepare the herb boxes.
