|Lettuce ready for planting - April 2011|
|Our garden "palette" to choose from - May 2011|
A few highlights since our last post:
|Jan with lettuce for the Food Bank|
|Llyn with spring's bounty!|
|A-Frame - tomato cages with mulch on the paths|
|Seth and Ricardo take lettuce home to their families after helping us mulch the garden paths|
|Jan, spreading mulch|
|Jennifer and Llyn planting tomatoes|
|Larry (the lawnmower doctor) starting seeds at the Monroe garden|
|"Butter Crunch" lettuce|
|Pepper plants interspersed with red lettuce. The lettuce will be harvested before the peppers get too big.|
Much thanks too to all the people bringing us your used pots and flats. We're glad to give them new life. Phyllis Derr has been calling us to pick up her lawn clippings in Monroe. We use them to mulch. We've received financial donations since our last post from Jennie and Kris Rhoads, Craig Erken, Karen Josephson, Angee Costa and Chuck and Betty Conway. And thanks to Steve Rose who, once again has grown hundreds of tomato starts which he gives away to food-bank recipients, volunteers and provides us with the surplus at the Sharing Gardens.
It looks like we'll have quite a few extra tomatoes to give away. First come, first served. Stop on by the Monroe garden during volunteer times if you'd like to take some home to your own garden.
