Notes from the Garden
Late last month, Lindsey, Steffan, Therese, and Meredith harvested two bushels of sweet potatoes! This was our first sweet potato crop, so it was something of an experiment. The harvest seemed like a treasure hunt; fun and delicious!
We are doing fall planting in stages. Last week we put in beets, red potatoes, and arugula. We are still harvesting kale, collards, squash, and tomatoes. Thanks to all our volunteers, including Shirlee, Jacob, Sylvia, Wafic, and Michael.
