First Harvest & Garden Work Day
We have our first harvest out of the Demo Garden today! We have several of the ‘Sweet Gourmet’ squash from the Mexican garden, a ‘Gretel’ eggplant from our wheelchair accessible container garden, 2 ‘Rocky’ snack cucumbers, and 3 zucchini from the Family of 4 Garden.
The 3 zucchini weighed in at 12 oz, making our first Family of 4 tally worth $1.13. (Zucchini goes for about $1.50/lb most of the time.)
Meanwhile, we also had lots and lots of vines to train up to the trellises. They have been going crazy in this heat! I’m glad something enjoys the heat.
We were also a little past time for tying up the non-caged tomatoes. We had to put 2 layers of twine on most of the plants. They are starting to bloom, but still showing ill-effects from the herbicide injury.
