The Month of June

Since the last blog entry we have harvested collards, lettuce, radish, spinach, arugula, kale, 3 colors of roses, parsley, mustard greens, swiss chard, snap peas and basil. During this time we planted cucumbers, watermelon, decorative gourds, cantaloupe, tomato, orange bell peppers, green beans, pumpkin, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, cosmos, beans, kale, basil, turnips, poppy, marigold, mustard greens and scallions. Three trellises were built for our cucumbers, squash and snap peas. We continue to weed and water regularly. Work was done at Iyana House to cut back many of the tree branches to give more space and sunlight to the back yard and also a dead butterfly bush was completely removed. Also, shrubs and tree branches were cut back in the front yard at Morris Avenue. Finally, we made horseradish with grated radishes, apple cider vinegar and red wine vinegar. We ate this with 2 types of crackers. Good bye.
