The Weekly Leaf-let: June 8-14

Gardeners this week: Ingrid, Michelle, Winifred, Peter, Dean, Dorothy, Evelyn, Derek

Thanks to all the rain this week, OPCG gardeners didn’t have to worry too much about watering.  We focused instead on weeding, transplanting, and finishing up the planting for the year.

The following herbs were added to the herb bed:

  • Thai basil
  • Genovese basil
  • Chamomile
  • Fennel
  • Sage

Garlic scapes were also harvested!

Some of the gardeners were lucky enough to benefit from the knowledge of a friendly fellow Ward 22-er, who helped identify some of the unknown plants (and weeds!) in the native plants bed.

Finally, several of the gardeners made note of the insect life living in and around the garden.  These included fat earthworms, spiders, and a rather spectacular brown and red moth.  Some photos of these friends, and our progress this week, are included below!
