The sunflowers are being harvested and sold for feeding birds, or making flower arrangements. The money raised will be put back into the community gardens.
There are several ways to hang the sunflower for the birds. The easiest is to tie a string around the stem and hang it from a bird feeder or a branch.
Within an hour, the chickadees found it and gave us a great show.
The tomatoes are ripening fast. Look at all the different colorful heirloom varieties that were grown.
The cauliflower head is about the size of the gardener’s head and looks terrific.
And the corn was reported to be very tasty by the couple who grew the Iroquois “three sisters” garden of corn, beans and squash.
The garden is doing great. Come see. As you walk around, notice how the pumpkins are beginning to orange.
If you are interested in learning more about how you can garden at the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens next season, drop me a note and I will add your name to the list of gardeners who will be contacted in 2018 when the applications for next year become available.
In the meantime, I hope to meet you in the garden.
