What to bring:
- picnic dinner for yourself and your family
- bug spray (alas, the mosquitoes are thriving in this warm, wet weather)
- work gloves if you have them (we have extra gloves available if you don't)
Overall, the vegetable plots are growing pretty well. With all the rain we've had, everything is growing and nothing appears to be too waterlogged. Of course, the weeds are growing, too, prolifically in some spots. In the front garden, we have cucumbers, beans, dill, kale, broccoli and flowers.
So, we certainly have our work cut out for us this Thursday! Everyone who comes will surely have something to bring home as a reward for their hard work: a few cucumbers, a handful of beans, a bunch or several of kale, and perhaps a turnip or two.
Even if you don't make it to the workday, remember to check here for garden updates and announcements. As we get closer to school starting (I know, I know, no one wants that reminder just yet!) we'll be doubling down on weeding and other preparations for when the students and staff return.
