The REC garden is growing well. The fencing/trellising for the beans and tomatoes were completed. Beth, Jerry and Gayle worked on tying up the tomatoes one Saturday morning. We have spread some mulch around the tomatoes and straw around the peppers, squash and pumpkins.
We harvested our first cucumbers over the weekend and again on Monday. There will be cukes available to purchase at the meeting, if anyone is interested.
The biggest issue right now is trying to keep ahead of the weeds and grass. I know that Joe, Beth, Jerry, Patti, Gayle, Michlele and Lori have worked in the garden this past month. If I missed anyone, I apologize, but a big thank you to all those folks, your help is greatly appreciated.
