Bounty!

Hello Dear Co-Op Friends!

11895296_10204731195268428_5411841967398254577_oSincere thanks to those who came out Saturday and helped dig up weeds and put the garden in such lovely order.  John, Connie, Carla, Ray, Talia, Elizabeth, Mark, Teresa, Allan and Christian – what a fabulous crew!  The harvest is plentiful, and all went home with bags of good veggies and some apples.  I have the garage fridge packed full of pears, apples, peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, eggplant – so if you need some, it’s already picked!  There will be more this weekend, so come pick anytime.   Pears need to be picked – they should be refrigerated for a couple weeks, and then brought out for several days to room temp for ripening.  Apples are ripening – probably wait a couple more weeks for picking the latest crop.  Oh, and we netted the grapes, and they should be ready in a couple weeks too.

Such abundance! Come harvest when you have a few minutes.  There are a lot of herbs, too:  parsley, basil, thyme, rosemary, lavender.  And beets and carrots are hiding all over…

Go with garden graces,
