Week of Aug 28

Thanks to Rick Kenyan for taking great care of our garden this past week. This week Liz Cowles has lots of harvesting to do! The tomatoes vines are full of fruit that are on the verge of ripening. This past week at coffee hour we had tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, basil, parsley, beans and cucumber to share. Be sure to come to coffee hour and take away some of the tasty garden treats so that you can enjoy them at home.

Volunteer Guide for Week of Aug 20

This week the garden is in need of water and harvesting. Keep an eye out for tomatoes turning red, peas filling out, cucumbers reaching harvest size, beans on the vine and herbs that could use a trim and in turn trim your plate. Harvest any zucchini before they get too big. There is an eggplant coming, but it may need some more time. Enjoy some of the harvest and please bring some to share at coffee hour next week. If you aren't able to be at church on Sunday, put the produce in the fridge and write a comment here or send me an email (bethany.a.shannon@gmail.com) and I will be sure to get it out for all to enjoy. Happy gardening!

Helping Hands

VBS and Sarah Scoville tended the garden this past week. Their small mouths even tasted the harvest. Thank you to all the helpers little and big.

Week of Aug 6 Volunteer Guide

There will likely be red tomatoes and what goes better than fresh basil. Harvest what you find and share at coffee hour on Sunday. Don't forget to look under the cucumber plant and to search for zucchini. Pull out the radishes and reseed with beets. Water as necessary and have a wonderful time watching the garden grow.

I would to see some of the pictures and hear some of the stories from your volunteer week. Post a comment with any of your musings.

Radishes - A win for pollinators

So I let the radishes go... they are flowering now. This is bad news for radish lovers but excellent news for our local pollinators. The flowers were a buzz with bees this week.
