notes from the garden

Gabriela and Marcello 
After missing my gardening day during the Labor Day weekend I rejoined the gardeners this past Saturday.  Linda M. helped with the removing of vegetable plants and the preparation of the soil for next season by sifting and adding compost to one of our community plots.  Gabriela brought in cover crop seeds and added them to that same plot.  Blanca helped with the harvesting of tomatoes, collard greens and weeded around the raised beds.  Mark P. worked at weeding around the inside and outside the garden fence and general landscaping while I helped with the sifting of the compost.  Overall it was a very productive day as we get ready to prepare our soil and beds for next year while still harvesting some of the remaining vegetables for the Food Pantry.

Our group gardening days remain Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to noon.  We will be having our second free gardening workshop on Thursday September 24 at 6:30 pm with Suzi Novak.  If you like more information about the class topic and registration please visit
