Summer in the Potomac Heights Garden-Week 7!


We have really entered into a time of abundance at our humble garden! An amazing season of growth is really taking off and the area is really something to see. The first thing I notice everyday is the corn that long ago passed me in height and is approaching something near 8 feet these days. The tassels of the corn are prominent and we are just waiting on the silk so the corn can get goin! (I will discuss the details of corn reproduction when this time comes, so no worries). Unfortunately we have had a few squash bug problems, but only a couple of squash casualties; many more have survived than not. The blueberries are fantastic, especially right off of the bush! This week we had the privilege of donating 14 pounds of produce to Food for Others which included an onion, 9 (or 10) red cabbages, hot peppers, and several yellow crookneck squash. Also, a big thanks to the science camp that came to learn about compost!!

This Thursday we have our first ever produce sale in the Johnson Center! Please come out and support us either by signing up for the email list if you haven’t, purchasing well-priced produce, or just saying hi! We will be at Kiosk C from 11-2, this Thursday July 14! Hope to see you there!!
