…is just a week away, so I thought I’d show you some of the food neighbors have grown in their small plots in the community garden.
A walkway between the raised beds
Iron-laden Swiss Chard
Purple Cabbages, coming along nicely
Fresh Dill, to add to a potato salad for a nice lift
Physalis philadelphica, better known as Tomatillo, is a great addition to Salsa Verde
Cheery Cherry Tomatoes…I almost wanted to pick the ripest and pop it in my mouth, but I did not–I didn’t grow it!
Don’t know about this…it IS a Tomato, perhaps a newer variety?
Small Acorn Squash…they’ll be ready to pick in about two weeks
And lastly, at the far end of the garden…
…tiny Crabapples are ripening, just waiting to be pickled and served for Thanksgiving dinner!
One huge plus at this location: There is a water tap, so the gardeners do not have to rely on Mother Nature, who didn’t provide quite enough rain this Summer!
There’ll be some great, fresh meals in a number of homes in the neighborhood–the gardeners’ hard work certainly paid off!
