Garden Updates — 07/09/2017 — First donation, potatoes planted and more!

Hello Gardeners,

We had a very productive workday on Saturday. Rich was able to get a small tiller from Carolyn M. We trimmed the weeds down and Rich tilled the area for the potatoes. We dug four trenches in long rows and Chris F. planted. The new picnic table in place, and looks terrific. We are so blessed to have such generous donors. I really encourage you to stop by and take a look if you haven’t already. Blueberry bushes are struggling a bit, however I believe with a little TLC they improve! The raised beds and the rest of the garden is looking amazing. Our canine garden ambassador Weasley gave us some great companionship while we did our work!

The areas where we put the newspaper or clippings down, in between rows has really paid off. I think at least for now we are winning the war on the weeds. We must remain vigilant though!

The first produce is starting, with lots more on the way very soon. We have also made our first harvest:

The first Box of about 7 lbs., I will donate tomorrow. Mainly radishes, but a few green peppers and zucchini.

Please see the latest photos below:

Thanks,
Jason & Jaimee
