Last week at the Children’s Vegetable Garden we started to think about the process of wrapping up the beds for the summer. (BOO!) As we all know – too well – the summer in San Antonio can be brutal for some types of plants – and humans! Our solution: put the beds to sleep for the summer. Research and common sense has shown us that our spring crop is generally done producing quality veggies by the time the serious heat rolls around, and leaving the plants longer than advised only invites bad bugs to come party. So, next week will be our last blog post for the spring garden.
Since the Week 15 agenda consisted of general maintenance in our beds, and most of the harvesting was done during Week 14, I thought this would be a perfect time for some fun progression pictures:
That’s all we’ve got this week friends, be sure to check back in next week to see how our last meeting and work party went!!
