Greetings and Groundhogs!

NEWSFLASH – A fence-climbing, vegetable-chomping ground hog has been seen invading the Garden. For now, flashy pinwheels have been stuck into each bed and strings of shiny ribbon will be suspended to keep this and other varmints at bay.  (Ground hogs are protected and cannot be moved.)

The rest of the warm weather and seed crops were planted June 15th.  Seed sprouting of second crops are in the works. Currently, we have cantaloupe, cucumbers, Swiss chard, zucchini, and green beans joining the peppers and tomatoes.  Many thanks to Bob Peterson who constructed our four new raised beds!  Thank you to all of you who donated the lumber, soil, peat, and manure for the new beds.  A thanks also goes to Art Nikkel who tilled in the peat/manure into the soil.

We have already picked the first shoots of broccoli and green onions, plus there’s been two spinach harvests.  The green on the red beets and golden beets are 2-5 inches high.

The LCC Garden is a fellowship activity geared toward service.  If you enjoy the outdoors, think that soil is a lovely fragrance, want to learn to grow vegetables, or just like watering or pulling weeds, then this is for you.  All are welcome to tend the garden – veterans and newbies alike. The Garden gets watered everyday usually before 8:00 a.m. and always before 10:00 a.m.  Picking usually gets done in the evening between 6:30 and 7:30 pm.  Picked produce is washed and bagged, then refrigerated, before it is delivered to international students at Trinity International University  the next day or so. (These families at live on very tight budgets, and this outlet matches the size of our garden well.)
