Some old broccoli raab was pulled up and the new raspberry plants were planted. Some weeding was done and more lettuce was harvested. Peas were enjoyed on site and a few radishes were eaten. The tomatoes are coming along nicely and should start to show signs of ripening soon (especially with all of the heat).

The garden is flourishing. Along with the many varieties of lettuces still producing nicely, the carrots were finally ready for harvest and the majority of the 40+ carrots that were picked were eaten on site by very happy children and parents (and even a lucky dog). Peas were enjoyed along with some fresh herbs. Tomatoes are starting to appear on the plants and the chives are still a notable favorite.
New families are showing up each week along with the "regulars". Painting the rain barrel is on the to do list as well as making wish lists for future plans including possible storage as well as seating.
These pictures below are just a small sampling of the smiles, laughter, fun, and friendships that are growing alongside the wonderful food in our garden.
