Please read below for up to date info on harvest news:

  • Green beans 
    • Need picking this week. Some of them have gotten away on us and are too big for tender eating. You could leave those on the vine for those who are interested in shelling them when they get bigger still. But generally, good idea to pick the rows clean.
  • Cucumbers
    • Marshall picked a 5 gallon bucket that is in the shed. Please help yourself to these before end of day Monday. Tuesday morning I’ll pick up remainder for food bank. There will be lots of pickling size cucumbers for picking this week.
  • Carrots
    • All carrots in garden 1 were pulled because of an infestation of some kind and are in the shed. Please help yourself before end of day Monday. I’ll pick up remainder on Tuesday morning for Food Bank.

Corn is not quite ready yet, but very soon.

    Hello All,Regarding basil, may I suggest that we harvest the growing tips, rather than cutting whole stems? If you look closely, you will see that the plant forms a rosette of leaves at the growing tip (the very uppermost part of each stem). Below this, on each stem of the plant, there is a pair of branches, one on either side of the stem. The notches where these branches leave the stem have tiny leaves in them, which will form new rosettes of leaves if the main growing tip is pinched off, so we can get a good bit more basil if we each pick just the growing tips, leaving the plant to produce more rosettes in a few days. Enjoy!Andy
