This was the first weekend of Fall. We are busy preparing for the end of the growing season at the
Stoddart Avenue Community Garden, while we try to decide whether to continue. We had almost a small crowd at the Garden on Saturday morning, with Sabrina, Tom, Zephyr, infant, Frank, Barb, Capital University student volunteer, Nick, and his father. While the temperatures are very pleasant, it is seasonably very dry; we’ve received less than an inch of rain in the past four weeks.
Then, I thinned the romaine lettuce growing in the food pantry plot and transplanted them as well. I also watered the new seedlings growing elsewhere in the Garden and my own plot. I also harvested greens, broccoli, herbs, tomatillos and peppers for our weekly food pantry donation, pinched basil, watered my own plot and harvested from my own plot.
