Elizabeth and Anthony earned two pints of cherry tomatoes, a bunch of swiss chard, a red cabbage, and a giant carrot for all their hard work in the garden today. Elizabeth said her family had never had red cabbage before but after she took one home from the garden a few months ago now they really like it. Exactly the kind of small change a community garden can make! We picked up all the litter, watered the border plants, swept the mulch from the walkways, and pulled a hundred weeds. We’ve been so busy with school activities lately the garden itself has been a little neglected but I think the plants have mostly benefited from minimal intervention. Still it was good to get these maintenance items accomplished and keep the garden looking great through the summer.
