Fenton Friday: Last of the Melons
This is the last of the watermelons that the summer interns grew. You can read all about their process in the current issue here. I think most of the summer edibles are winding down now as the heat of summer seems to have left us prematurely. (I am NOT complaining.)
I am now starting to think about what I can pull out and what I want to let go a bit longer. Then what autumn crops I want to put in. For sure, I want to start some lettuce, radish, and carrots. But, do I risk peas again? Last fall, they were a total bust.
I wish this Zinnia (pictured below) had been in bloom at fair time -- I am sure it would have been a winner!
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 6th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.)
