We continue to work at both gardens. We are weeding and watering daily to keep the gardens productive. We cleaned out the greenhouse and sprayed a fish and kelp fertilizer on the base and root of all the plants in the garden. We continue to harvest and anticipate a visit from Sydell and the kitchen workers next week at one of the garden sites. Both gardens are growing nicely and our famous tomatoes should be ready to begin harvesting later this month and definitely next month. This week we harvested:
