Saturday, August 18, 2013: Harvesting

Saturday, August 18, 2013

A short work morning today with only harvesting to be done. Tomatoes, eggplants, herbs, celeriac, leeks, beets, and beans were the crops that were picked and distributed amongst the 28 families that came to work. Several specimens were taken by Roberta to be submitted to the produce competition tomorrow at the Cylburn Arboretum.

This Sunday we rehabilitated the zucchini bed as squash vine borers  succeeded in destroying the crop.  Arugula seeds were planted in the  cleaned bed.  Weeding was done throughout the garden, particularly in  preparation for the return of the judge this week as the garden has 
made it into the finals of the Baltimore City Community Garden  Competition. An abundance of tomatoes were harvested along with  eggplants, Swiss chard, beans, beets, cucumbers (a few) and herbs.  Thanks go to Aaron who delivered harvested food to Our Daily Bread.

And Roberta sent the following link for next Sunday's event:
