June 19, 2017

It was another busy day in the garden at 111. At 111, there are a few really lovely rose bushes growing along the back wall. However, they have gotten pretty big and are bending over because they have gotten so top heavy. This wouldn't be a problem, except they are bending over a few of the raised beds, preventing anything from growing there. So a few of us, very carefully, tied the roses to the fence so that they aren't in the way of the raised beds anymore. We got a few thorn pricks, but no serious injuries.

We also replanted and thinned out our basil plants. A few sneaky basil plants were found throughout the garden, so we carefully dug them up and replanted them in our main basil patch, while spreading out some of the basil plants that were already there. We also thinned out the carrots and the beets, which is especially important since they need extra room to grow in the soil.

On the harvesting front, we picked radishes (there are always more radishes), sugar snap peas (which were delicious) and broccoli rabe. We also planted some new squash plants. The grape vine on the back fence of the garden is doing well, too!
