A week can bring tons of change to the urban farm. As you can see from the lettuce photo, the plants are bushy and somewhat wild. This weekend the harvesting needs to be pretty hardcore. That’s ok, I’ve lined up some friends to help us enjoy the bounty next week. There will be lots of lettuce, spinach, chard, and an assortment of herbs in their care packages. Mmmm salad!
Weeding needs to be hardcore too. I pulled some out this morning but they have snuck in while I wasn’t looking.
And I wouldn’t mind stopping by North Haven Gardens to see if they have any raspberry bushes left. That is if it fits in with the carpet removal…
Here are a few more visual progress reports:
Tomato progress–getting bigger and getting more flowers
Black diamond watermelon from Lisa
Cilantro and parsley are on their way out. Bok choi needs to get harvested too.
And I also need to hang up a cute garden sign Bruce found while I was away. I’ll post a photo when it’s up.
Looks like a good time outside is on the horizon.
I know! I am always amazed by what those little seeds (and tiny plants) can do. Pretty excited about the harvest this weekend — and being able to give my friends the gift of yummy salads.
I’m gonna be eating gooooood fresh salads next week! 🙂
yes, you will be. just make sure you wash the produce well. as lisa could tell you, sometimes nature comes along for the ride to the salad bowl.
Wow, looks amazing!
It all looks wonderful
Thank you! So far so good.
