It’s now approximately Week 6 for the vegetable garden, and things are really rolling. Garden volunteers have just completed planting the second large plot with tomatoes and squash: 280 Black Beauty Zucchini plants & 360 tomato plants (a combination of Big Beefs and a Champion heat-resistant hybrid.)
The original 170 tomato plants planted six weeks ago are loaded with tomatoes, and the original planting of yellow squash is beginning a tidal wave of output. Volunteers are still needed for mulching, weeding and harvesting.
