The Weekly Leaf-let: OPCG Garden notes for the weeks of June 30 – July 5

This was a big week for the OPCG, as it marked our first harvest of the season!  The garden is now coming in quite quickly, and regular harvests will be taking place from now on.

New plants and seeds also continue to be added to the garden, including eggplant, spinach, beets, endive, radish, and more greens.

A very smart suggestion was also made this week to help with the number of cigarette butts being left around the garden grounds.  A “butt” container has been put by the bench, and it seems to be working well!  Fewer cigarette butts on the ground = a prettier garden for everyone 🙂

The gardeners have been busy maintaining, weeding and transplanting, and our efforts are really paying off! Special thanks to Mother Nature, who has been providing the garden with copious amounts of rain.
