Kitchen Garden Update

This week we stalked most of the tomatoes and planted some additional peppers, Asian eggplants, and marigolds.  

The peppers eggplants and marigolds were donated by Will Summers (one of the farmers that spoke at our Local Young Farmers discussion this spring) from the Stony Point Center who also offered us his tiller whenever we need it.  We were able to secure the greenhouse a bit more by digging it into the ground a few inches (it would stood the wind from this weeks storm).

Today we also turned the compost and began to create a new planting bed where we may want to plant some zucchinis. Mother Nature has taken care of the watering this week.
Next Steps
We need to continue planting additional seedlings, turning the compost, and mixing soil in our new bed.  We should also be thinking about how to create a sitting space by perhaps moving our stone bench.  

If anyone knows of an outdoor table that can be donated, please let us know since this would be great for our garden. 

Again please try to come on Saturdays at about 10 am or Wednesdays at 5 pm. As always stop by any time as you can help turn the compost, weed the vegetable beds, water, or just watch and enjoy how all of our plants are doing.
Have a great rest of the week.
