July Comes Around

After months of cold and wet weather, the Montana summer has finally exploded into days of 12-13 hours of hot, beautiful, bask-ible sun. And suddenly everything is growing, including at our Somers School Garden! Here are some highlights . . .

The broccoli is forming heads:

 The garlic scapes are curling and bulging with future flowers:

Our newly seeded zucchini and buttercup squash are growing leafy:

Our Red Russian Kale and red cabbage are growing big and strong:

And our raspberries are forming, to be ready in a few weeks! See those greyish, aggregate fruits full of possibilities? Yum.

Things are really happening! We can't wait to get harvesting and prepping food for our school food program--stay tuned.
