Our Last Summer Group Meeting of 2015

All the volunteers got together in early September to have a meeting before most of us started school again. We discussed who could continue to volunteer in the fall and how the summer went. Afterward, we went out into the garden to gather food together.

We cut off the dead flowers on the coneflowers and dying leaves on the tomatoes. Then, we gathered around the herb and kale beds to harvest. The air filled with the scents of the herbs as we cut at their stems. The drying cilantro flowers were starting to turn into corriander seeds. One of the bigger tomatoes was finally ripe and red, while more huge tomatoes were still green.

We used the now empty plots where the snap beans had been for fall crops: bok choy, spinach, and salad greens.

The seed pods on the milkweed were becoming spiky, yet had not opened yet.
