New Garden Growth

The weather has heated up here in Somers and the plants are starting to perk up. Our squash plants have a ton of blossoms on them (above), we have our first tomato ripening (below right), our first potato is leafing out the side of one of the potato towers (below left), and the lettuce and carrots are growing happily (below center). We are looking forward to our first Work Party this Saturday, July 23, 10 am- 3pm. Come by and see the plants, get your hands dirty and enjoy the beautiful weather! Bring water and garden gloves and a spade if you have one, and invite your family, friends and neighbors. We look forward to seeing you there!

  1. I was just introduced to your blog yesterday, and am amazed at how much you have accomplished in a relatively short period of time.

    All of the plants look vibrant and healthy. I'm sure they will be producing a steady harvest of yummy and nutritious goodness from now until Fall.

    It took strong bodies, with 20 fingers, to build this garden -- but it would never have been accomplished so beautifully without the vivid imagination, perseverence, and generosity of two very special hearts. Well done!
