Growing My Way?- Looking Leggy

Two weeks into our company garden project and we have seen quite a bit of growth. The pepper plants finally joined the party, catching up quickly with the onions and tomoatoes.

Growing My Way? Sprouts and King Cakes

Day 22 and our company garden is doing great after we transplanted the seedlings into bigger homes last week.

Out with the Bolting in with the Seeds

As I mentioned last week we have had some bolting greens in the community garden over the last few weeks due to record heat and no rain. Our collards were the first to go followed shortly after by the spinach. Those spring greens just couldn’t take the heat. Luckily for us temperatures have now settled back to normal for our [...]

Planting Now for a Fall Garden

Now is the time to plant your fall garden and get a few more months of fresh vegetables. Some plants produce higher quality and more flavorful vegetables when they are allowed to mature during cooler weather, which makes late summer/early fall the perfect time for these veggies. While there is still plenty of time to [...]

Ticks: A Warm Weather Threat

Last week we had a bout of lovely unseasonably warm temperatures and decided to take advantage of the warm evening by taking our Boston terrier on a long walk around the dog path adjacent to our neighborhood. Later that evening while giving our pup a good scratch behind the ears we made the awful discovery [...]
