Fenton Friday: Girl Scouts Visit

This week a local Girl Scout troup came to visit our community garden. I took them around to all the highlights: the wood chip pile, shared tool bin, compost pile, and the cistern. They had a great time filling up watering cans and were very knowledgeable already about how composting works.

We visited various plots and interviewed the gardeners who were present about what they like to grow. We then sampled some stuff from my plot including asparagus and lettuce, both of which were eaten quickly with requests for seconds and thirds. We smelled and examined herbs of which chamomile was a particular favorite. Several went home with stems to dry and make their own herbal teas.

Finally, we potted up seeds for pollinator-friendly plants like Zinnias and Dill. All-in-all a very productive hour and a great group of intelligent scouts.

After they left, I planted my new strawberry plants and the cauliflower and broccoli seedlings.

What is growing in your edible garden 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 FentonStreet 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 7th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
