Jim, Maria, Joe, Tom C., Shannon and I worked to harvest a lot of food yesterday. We also turned over and amended plot 17 (where we had snow peas and later cucumbers) and Maria planted garlic for next year. Joe fixed the trellis in plot 24 (with snow peas and spinach) and we covered it with row cover. As you can see, there were lots of tomatoes and other items to harvest. The priorities for the next week or two are: to continue to weed beds (especially those in plots 1-25 that have bind weed in them); harvest the rest of the dill (going to seed) in plot 14, and turn this plot over; finish bringing the compost from the pile on the edge of the field to the garden–fill plastic bags and/or barrels; continue to pinch suckers off tomatoes; harvest remaining summer and winter squash flowers (NOT SQUASH) in plots 2,3,4 and 22 and 31, and in the compost bins; and as always, pull bind weed anytime you see it.
Saturday, I will not be there, but if people see a break in the rain Saturday or Sunday, then go by and do a bit of weeding or something and pick the ripe tomoatoes.
Hope to see many of you on Tuesday–same
Bat-time, same Bat-channel.
