Summer in the Potomac Heights Garden-Week 9


Hello to my fellow veggie people!

The Potomac Heights Vegetable Garden is happy, very very happy. How can I tell? Because of how colorful and AMAZING it is! This week I had the privilege of welcoming 4 different varieties of tomatoes into the world including: Cherokee Purple, Mini Orange, Matt’s Wild Cherry, and Garden Peach! Each is unique and totally fabulous; even for a person who sadly hates the taste of tomatoes, I have enjoyed munching on these guys! They even made their way to the dinner table, how excellent. But enough about the tomatoes, we have the Three Sisters Garden coming along beautifully, two little peaches ripening up, peanuts growing in the ground, cantaloupe getting huge, and many more exciting things.

Also this weekend I had the privilege of working with the Franklin Fellow’s who came out on Saturday and helped me put up fencing to protect our main tomato crop from those blasted deer. They also assisted in harvesting, weeding, and staking up tomatoes; they were so helpful and a real joy to have in the garden! Thanks guys!!

One last thing, this Thursday I will be at the kiosk again for our mini-farmer’s market, 11am-1pm; stop by and say hi!

Tata for now,
