Salutations!! Another week done, and more produce harvested (more beets) and more exciting things planted! The beets harvested just this morning went to Food for Others, a Fairfax food bank. 7 pounds were donated to people in need and I can’t tell you what a great experience this was. Seeing our work go to something good is so inspiring and makes me want to work even harder, what a blessing.
So this week with all of the beet beds empty, we had the chance to plant more spinach, lettuce, parsley and various herbs! Hooray! The watermelon is also showing signs of life and small tomatoes have begun to develop. Our wonderful volunteers have really helped us this week doing various weeding, planting, and planning; they have been so great! I’m looking forward to this next week with more growth and ripe produce, the garden changes daily!
DWARF POMEGRANATE TREE PLANTOGRAPHY:
So this week I looked up information on the super adorable dwarf pomegranate tree. We have two in the garden, one of which just started to flower! They are quite small and easy to miss but the flowers are really quite stunning. The tree can withstand lower temperatures and can also work indoors! The fascinating thing is that it still produces pomegranate fruit! The fruit will be slightly smaller, but that classic taste will be there and that is something to look forward to!
