We have beautiful new trellises to support our tomatoes, peas and beans! A spigot has been installed at the northeast corner of the garden, so now watering can get done in 10-15 minutes! Let’s make watering and tending the garden as fun as possible. What if pairs and trios of people would commit to watering once a week for a month, and afterward could go someplace to enjoy conversation over coffee or ice cream? I would commit some time weekly for that! Wouldn’t you?

While you are watering the vegetables, you can check on which ones need to be picked. There will be a picking guide for our various vegetables to make it easier to know when something is ready and should be picked. Picking vegetables early and often keeps the plant setting new blossoms and avoids our growing zucchini to baseball bat size or woody green beans as fat as a finger. Our food pantry day is Tuesday. The best picking days, then, would be Friday, Saturday, and Monday. We’ll have space in the refrigerator for picked veggies and bags and containers in which to store them.
