Work Day! In the garden, every day is work day. But when we convene as a group, we get a lot done together. And have fun, too. Chris mounts the “Welcome” sign that also keeps deer from leaping over the short gate. Chris A. and Chris N. prepare to replace row cover with fencing. Now a deer can’t put a hoof through the row cover that used to be there and get into the garden. It looks a whole lot nicer this way, too. Kyle & Kaite pinch basil tops. Lots of us are making lots of pesto. We eat it fresh, but want some for winter, too. In another post, I’ll show you how I preserve it. Jason picks herbs for tea — that’s lemon balm (melissa) he’s working on now — while his son peers through the fence. Colleen examines Good King Henry. Then she’ll get to work hoeing out weeds and planting new seeds: chard, daikon, arugula, and more. The cycle starts all over again.
