Hot harvest

Basin's Backyard Garden

Bill Baer, Chris Gessele, Crystal Rafferty and Joan Dietz braved humidity and heat.

Noon hour brought a few clouds, saving today’s Basin’s Backyard Gardeners from full sun in the high heat and humidity.

We harvested a really good variety today. Not a lot of most things, but signs of bountiful days to come. All told, we collected nine pounds of lettuce, cilantro (the end of those plants for the year), basil, parsley, tomatoes, eggplant, banana peppers, a bell pepper, beans, peas, kohlrabi, and a couple little cucumbers.

Crystal Rafferty and Tracie Bettenhausen took the exciting veggies to Community Action Program Region VII.

Our flowers for cutting are coming right along! Go ahead out and snip a few if you’d like.

Basin’s Backyard Garden is starting to get lush!

We’ll have to keep an eye on the cucumbers and tomatoes. They’ll really start taking off soon.
