The Fall season is coming

As the Fall season is approaching, the time is coming for the growing season to end. We continue to harvest much from both sites.  Some new vegetables that we have harvested are melons, kohlrabi, mustard greens, Roma tomatoes, squash and cabbage. The delivery of soil came to E. 116 St. so some time this month we will have some flowers  and fall crops in the Earth. We have begun deadheading the sunflowers because flocks of birds have been eating the sunflower seeds. I was able to take a picture of one in the act of eating the sunflower seeds. We saved some tomato and melon seeds. Finally, our annual Harvest Festival is planned for the coming weeks. Goodbye.
