Time to Weed!


The heat and humidity has finally arrived which means the weeds (and vegetables) have arrived!

Gardeners are reminded to weed their beds early and often as overgrown weeds will choke out vegetables and turn their beds into an eyesore.

I encourage you to get into the garden and weed your plot over the course of the next few days. If plots become overgrown and unmaintained they may be taken away from members as stated in the member contract.

Also, remember to pick your vegetables!!! If you can't eat all of the vegetables you are growing donate them to a local soup kitchen, give them to your friends and family or preserve them for the future! If you will be out of town and can't get to your plot contact a friend to pick your veggies and weed your plot. Maintaining your plot during July and August will mean bountiful vegetables in September!

Let me know if you have any questions about weeding or when to pick your vegetables.

Thanks and happy gardening!
