Updates, Week Ending June 17, 2017 – An Unexpected Harvest

This week actually ended up having mostly sunshine.  On Friday, there was a violent thunderstorm in the evening that flooded the streets pretty heavily (it even knocked down a few branches from trees.)  Saturday was overcast (with the threat of rain and a late afternoon rain for about an hour.)  When I arrived to the garden on Sunday, I was greeted by an absolute abundance of growth and had to do a harvest of the 1st planting of radishes and the first planting of garden greens (cut and come again.)  In the other beds, you could see the abundant growth everywhere, including the weeds.

I did find that the other beds around me that had been desperate for water the past couple weeks grow tremendously.  With the forecast for the upcoming week, I don’t think anyone will need to do much watering.  I put down a third planting planning on the rain forecast for this week to help out.

On the deck, the morning glories began growing their vines and I more or less put up the trellis on the south wall for those suckers.  We’ll see how much vegetation sprouts from them and how full they get.

Overall, a successful week.

Be well, everyone.

Green Pitch Updates for the Week Ending May 27, 2017 – Small Victories

This week the video update came from the corner of the community garden plot  where I helped with weeding (Peterson Garden Project, Land on Lincoln.)  I was amazed that the dirt that currently exists was built solely from 12″ of bark chips that were put down four years ago.  (That does give very strong testimony to the benefit of putting down bark mulch, kids.)

The weather the past week was a majority of overcast days with rain.

Photos of progress included.

Be well, everyone.
