Fenton Friday: Baby Veg

cherry tomato
This week in my community garden plot, I continued to pick a few handfuls of snap peas and strawberries. I put in some new bark chips for the pathways and continue to battle the nastiest of weeds -- Canada thistle!

The tomatoes, peppers, and okra are flowering and forming tiny fruits -- promises of good things to come.

The cut-flower seeds I planted are coming in very sporadically, I will give them another week and may re-plant some sections.

Meanwhile, the cucumber and watermelon seeds the interns planted last week are already making their appearances.

A fellow community gardener gave me some sweet potato slips so I will clear a space for them next.

How is your edible garden growing this week?

About Fenton Friday:
Every Friday during the growing season, I'll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the Fenton Street Community Garden just across the street from my house. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 5th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.)
