|Eric Bond and Hadley Baker taping a segment for Takoma Radio.|
Joining us today in the garden was Eric Bond, the host of the Talk of Takoma show on Takoma Radio WOWD. He interviewed us (editor Kathy Jentz and one of the three summer interns, Hadley Baker) about the garden and Hadley's internship experiences. The segment will air on Sunday, July 26 afternoon sometime during the 2 o'clock hour. You can listen to it online at https://takomaradio.org/ or if you are local and can get the signal at 94.3 FM.
Elsewhere in our plot, we have a couple cucumbers and the watermelon vines are setting flowers. The soy bean and okra plants are growing like weeds. We harvested basil and I add a layer of compost around the fast-growing potato plants. The container eggplant 'Picasso' has set one fruit on it. Most excitingly, a few new strawberries are forming and I hope to be able to eat some this time without bird and slug damage!
What are you growing and harvesting this week in your edible garden?
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 in zone 7 Mid-Atlantic MD/DC border. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 8th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
