It’s been a while since I posted, and its been busy! We had our three sisters workshop with participants from the Jane Finch boys and girls club, and Not Far From the Tree! The corn they planted grew insanely fast so we had to plant it outside- seems to be doing ok so far, so by the end of the summer we should have some delicious Black Aztec corn and popping corn!
The tomatos and basil managed to survive in the cold frames over the chilly weekend; we also have more seedlings coming from the office and the Stop’s Green Barn, so there will be no shortage of delicious vegetables throughout the season.
Lately alot of people have been wandering through the garden at odd times- we welcome you! if you want to help out and you are unsure what to do, we ALWAYS need someone to weed and water. Check the planted beds to see if they are dry, and help yourself to the hose (it should reach most of the garden! just make sure to turn off the tank before you leave) Also, we are in constant war with bindweed, dandelions, garlic mustard, and other misplaced botanicals. Feel free to pull up what you can recognize!
Our calender of workdays is here on the blog, so take a look and see when you can join us. We welcome you, your friends, your kids, etc.
hope to see you soon!
