For those who have not been over to the Bayview Garden across from Bayview Corner (behind the old school building), Saturday, October 10 from 10 AM-1 PM, during our fall work party, would be a particularly fabulous time. We’ll be harvesting winter squash and putting the garden to sleep for the winter. Come lend a hand and stay for lunch!
But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, we have a few Bayview Garden updates to mention from this season: we dug two new beds in the spring, have grown radishes, turnips, tatsoi, bok choy, baby bok choy, carrots, beets, chard, zucchini, eggplant, eel river melons, padron, anaheim, and bell peppers, and loads of winter squash. And in fact, we sowed buckwheat on half of a beet bed, which led to many bees visiting the garden to help pollinate our winter squash. So far, we have harvested over 625 pounds of produce, and we still have about six beds of winter squash going right now!
Enjoy the great weather we’ve been having and hope to see you October 10!
