As the summer progresses this year, we will meet in the garden on Tuesdays and Fridays so that we can continue to produce crops.  Already this summer, we have harvested carrots, chard, lettuce, arugula, and potatoes.  We have also continued to tie up the tomato plants to bamboo poles which act as a brace to keep the plants sturdy as they grow taller.  Moreover, our herbs have started to take off, and the garlic looks as though it will be ready for harvest soon!  In addition, we saw some of our first beans last week - so we'll have to get ready for the much loved bean harvest soon.  Everything in the garden is blooming, and we will have plenty of crops to harvest going forward.  We are also continuing to plant two flats of lettuce each week so that we will always have a couple flats of lettuce ready for transplanting into the garden beds.  As we gear up for the long hot summer ahead of us, we look forward to the great harvest which awaits.
