|Young plants in hoop house|
Juaquin is back from Colorado and will be at the garden party.
Our beds are full so we'll be weeding and thinning. Bring a bag if you want to take amaranth and purslane home. There is plenty for everyone!
We'll be planning our fall crop as we have hundreds of young plants in the hoop house (kale, lettuce, herbs and flowers) that we started from seeds 3 weeks ago.
We'll also continue to transplant young seedlings.
As you may know, we started this garden from scratch on June 26. Our focus was to first and foremost build the soil and our beds were planted with a varieties of plants from our friends' farm in Colorado (basil, eggplant, tomato, pepper, parsley, celery).
On Wed. we'll be looking at the results of our first wave of efforts.
The beautiful weeds that grew in those beds have strengthened the soil. Our beds are healthy and ready to receive our fall crop.
As always come with your questions, passion, curiosity and willingness to participate in this lovely urban farm experiment (did I say bring cookies?)
