 After a couple weeks of intensive weeding, we are now over the hump and on to the next stage of the growing season.  After we finish mulching these freshly weeded veggies, we will be relatively ready to shift most of our time into harvesting.  We finished weeding just in time too!  The peas and green beans will soon be bearing their lovely seed pods in abundance.  The zucchini are warming up, ready to jump into the game any moment.  We also harvested our first beet!  The boxes will continue to add bulk to their leafy greenness as we progress further into the season.  If you are a tomato lover, you will be happy to know that we have many fruits set on the vines, and they are progressing nicely.

Grandma Vangie to the rescue!

Speaking of tomatoes, roughly 450 tomato plants would like to take this opportunity to formally recognize and thank Tony, Dave, and Vangie for all of the weeding, pruning, staking, and mulching that has happened in the last week or so.  The plants are enjoying the breeze that moves easily through their freshly pruned vines, preventing fungal invasion.  They are enjoying the extra water and space now that the weeds are gone.  And they love the mulch that holds in moisture even on hot afternoons.  THANKS FOR YOUR HELP TEAM!

We paid Dave for his hours of work with one of the first raspberries of the season.
