Our final summer garden workday is next Wednesday, August 23 from 5:30-7:30pm. It's our opportunity to get the garden plots all cleaned up and ready for students to return in a few weeks. We should have an abundance of tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, radishes, kale, beans and other delicious vegetables for kids to harvest and enjoy the first few weeks of the school year. Bring a picnic dinner, work gloves and insect repellent.
Meanwhile, look what I found while pruning tomatoes this afternoon:
Two little watermelons growing by the sunflower wall! These plants were late to germinate, so I've been a little concerned that the vines would produce anything, but if all goes well, some lucky class will have a watermelon snack sometime next month.
