News from the community garden
Lots of good stuff from the garden is ready to eat: The kale, collards, chard, mustard, and lettuce are beautiful. Please eat the lettuce soon, as the hot weather will make it get bitter. So far, the lettuce is still sweet, but it needs to be eaten! The other greens will withstand the heat a little better, but they are tender and good now too. Cabbage will be ready this week. Look for a big head and cut it. If the head is still small, give it a few more days. Garden cabbage is so sweet and good. Potatoes are not ready, so please let them grow. They need to stay in the ground until the plant dies back. Lend a helping hand - if you see beetles (striped) or larvae (red) on the potato plants, feel free to remove them. They are busy eating the plants, which will lessen the crop. This is a great job for young and old fingers. Just ask the Weese boys if you see them in the garden. If you are wondering when to come to the Community Garden, then wonder no more. The best thing about the garden is that it is always open. If you want to pick or work with others, there is a work day every Saturday at 10 a.m. Come for community and vegetables - the garden is there for you. ...
