The garden is looking really good. The squash and cucumbers are up, the corn and beans have sprouted, and the tomatoes are looking very healthy. Most of the hard work in the garden is done now that the majority of the plants are in and most of the seeds are planted, but we still need volunteers. Lee was at the garden alone on Saturday and he staked the peas, fertilized, and weeded between the rows.
Weeds will continue to be a problem all summer, and we need to do some hand weeding close to the plants. We have a few more plants to put in the ground and there are still plenty of seeds, if we choose to plant them. Lee said that the radishes and kale will be ready for harvesting on Saturday, June 25. So, if you like radishes or kale come and get your fill. Even if you don’t you should come and watch the beans grow… and pull a few weeds. We are there every Saturday from 9:00 – 11:00 am.
