Midsummer 2012

As promised, here are a couple of photos of the garden, about an hour after the summer solstice. Plants are super thirsty. Hopefully not too stressed with the >90F week! Summer is here. See you next Tuesday.
Arugula, red lettuce, and peas (all ready to eat)

Strawberries, tomatoes, and peas (less thirsty now)

Tuesday Work Nights

Tonight marked the first weekly worknight. We're going to go with tradition and continue to meet Tuesdays at 7 pm. Regular maintenance is keeping the weeds down (phew!). Let's keep it that way.
Unfortunately I left before taking photos of the lettuce and arugula (I did taste them - yum!) but given that it will be over 90F the next couple days, I'm pretty sure that I will be back to water. Stay tuned for photos. If you are passing by, the peas are also ready to be enjoyed.
This Thursday we'll also give a drink and some support to the tomatoes. We ran out of time (and materials) tonight. Special thanks to the amazing micro-weeder Max from Olympia.
Happy Summer Solstice to all (Wednesday June 20th, 7:09 pm)
