Update from Beth & Angie

We fertilized everything in both plots yesterday...thanks to everyone who helped weed!! The garden is looking great. We will water again today and refill all empty water jugs, there are about 10 jugs total...if everyone could bring more water this week that would be great!!

We need to weed!!

I was there on Fri and Sat to weed...woah..still lots to do. DV's, could each person commit to weeding just one row this week? I refilled all water jugs on Saturday (there are 20+ sitting there)...and everything is still looking great!! PS. Our first microgreen harvest last week made for some yummy side dishes at Yellow Door. Thanks to the harvest crew..Krisha, Mully, Janice, Sydney, and Ozzy!! :-) ~Angie

Onions and Al

I went to the garden today to find, yet again, several moats! There was so much rain that our rows were being protected by several inches of water... again!

I decided to start at the front, where I would likely not get sucked into the earth, with onions. Bad move. Have you ever tried to separate baby onions from grassy weeds??? It took about an hour to get 1/3 of a row done. But, I am so happy to see our little friends popping up. Tom gave me hope :D

Then it happened. Close to the beets I came upon a snail (the first living snail that I have ever met - sans shell). I call him "Al" the snail. Al was happy to be snuggling the rows of beet leaves but I get completely grossed out by squishy stuff like that so... I evicted him. Linda and Chris were in the garden then and I was feeling so bad for Al that I felt compelled to confess.

I didn't want Al to go it along so I had two trolls, naked as him, escort the squishy guy into the tall grass to live happily ever after.

All is well in our soggy garden! ~ Janice

Saturday morning update..

I watered all rows again yesterday and will fill jugs and return them to the garden this morning. Lots of activity in the garden. The tomatoes looked great yesterday, healthy and back to life!! Weeding is probabaly needed soon, it's hard to tell what is a vegetable and what is a weed at this point so I didn't do much of that. ~Angie
