Gardening Together for Ourselves and Our Neighbors The garden donations team had fun harvesting chard, bush beans, and onions tops to be used as scallions. They packaged them up in meal-sized bags and brought them to nearby neighbors. All that was harvested went quickly! Now that the gone-by veggies are, well, gone, gardeners turn lettuce beds for fall crops and weed between Brussels sprouts plants. Gardeners have time for less urgent but still-important tasks like weeding and wood-chipping walkways between rows. What a difference! Bush beans continue deliciously. Shishito peppers are coming along. Give these delicious and unpredictable peppers a try. https://cookieandkate.com/blistered-shishito-peppers-recipe/ Chris sees to the ongoing task of taking the compost’s temperature and turning the Jora tumbler. To reach pathogen-kill levels, the temperature 131 or higher for three days in a row. After trial and error, we’re achieving that regularly.
