July 9th at the Garden

We had a nice crowd at the garden this Saturday with Marcelo, Linda M, Laura, Iris, Blanca, Susan and Gabriela joining. MJ stopped by later to discuss watering at the garden.

Laura pulled out peas, which were finished. Blanca keeping weeds around the beds under control. 
Marcelo sifted the compost and Linda applied to the collards, tomatoes and other plants. Please note that there is some more compost ready to use in a pink round bin near the tools.

Things are growing beautifully and the various squash are full of flowers and some fruit at various stages of maturity. Activities at the garden included weeding, watering and harvesting kale, collards, lettuce, cucumbers, zucchini, beans, and some squash flowers among other things.

Susan proudly displays her prize spaghetti squash. She later devised a sling to support it.

MJ Wilson joined Gabriela later on to talk with the lawn care company to explore irrigation options for the Kitchen and Labyrinth Gardens. We'll ponder the different options in more detail once we receive the quotes. Please let me know if you are interested in being part of the "Irrigation Subcommittee".

Gabriela, Linda M and Marcelo confer about the arugula and collards. Part of the colorful harvest.

Next Steps: Let us know if there are any gardening supplies you think we should get (tools, amendments, etc.)

See you next week!
