Cleaning Up the Garden

We rolled up our sleeves this morning and really tidied up the garden.

Gina, Cecelia, Mary, Bill, Lois and a friend, Joe, Lucas, Tammy, Nick and Faith were all in the garden this morning. We cleared the early blight out of our plots. Remember when you clean up remove the roots and any tomatoes that drop. Early blight can overwinter on plant debris, so be thorough please.

And we weeded and weeded.

It was fun to do it as a group and we really got a lot accomplished.

In addition, I brought green beans, carrots, basil to the Moreau Community Center. I was hoping to meet the kind lady who cooked the produce for the campers this summer. She wasn’t there but I did learn her name…Laurie Collins. If you see her, please let her know how much I appreciate what she did.

There are still veggies growing like this pumpkin. giantp

We also have cabbage, Brussels sprouts, tomatillos, sunflowers and herbs coming along. Some other gardeners have carrots, potatoes, onions, cabbages, peppers and more growing.

It has been a wonderful season. I wish the early blight didn’t damage our tomatoes but I’m hopeful we can get on top of the problem by amending the soil and using organic fungicides next season.

We will need to meet a few more times once the cow manure arrives to spread it among the beds. And also for fun!

In September we are going to have a gathering. Details to follow. 🙂
