I can’t believe the Fourth of July has come and gone already! I hope you all enjoyed a nice long weekend with family and friends.

The garden is continuing to look great – we are starting to harvest our first zuccinis and tomatoes, but it will be another few weeks before things really start coming in.

A few quick announcements:

  • Mark your calendars for the evening of July 23rd – we will be hosting a pitch-in dinner for Grace Garden members, volunteers and supporters. Matthew Jose from Big City Farms (check out this Nuvo article for more information) will be presenting a talk on “Organic Gardening 101.” You won’t want to miss it!
  • CSA pick-up will be Thursday evenings from 7-8. We plan to begin on July 30th, but we may be able to begin sooner than that. Stay tuned for more information.

We had a plot leader meeting last night, and Randie showed off his new toy – a pump that he designed and built to transport water from 55 gallon drums in his van to the water drums out at the garden! Check it out:

We’re impressed, Randie!
