From my days at the Free Farm (which was at Gough and Eddy streets in SF), I fell in love with dahlias. We had gorgeous ones at the farm. I'm determined to learn how to grow them this spring, but until then I've been admiring the ones at the Little Red Hen garden. Here they are:
This is a belated post about the wonderful garden party we had at St. Mark's on Sept. 8 - (where does time go?) We loved seeing so many people in the garden, and we are so grateful to St. Mark's for this little piece of heaven in our city. Our harvest went to Martin Luther Towers for folks to share.....
Last week was a small-ish harvest but very pretty. Now everything is growing so that we can have a nice harvest for Diamond Diners in early September! We were without water at Little Red Hen garden for a time but Betsy heroically brought water with her to the garden so it's looking good thanks to Betsy.....
This is the little harvest that came forward to the altar at St. Aidan's on Sunday. Small but important......Thanks be.
We had a gorgeous harvest for the Free Farm Stand this week - lots of rainbow chard, kale, a bit of lettuce and some chives. I even got three strawberries before the squirrels took their little bites. (I know they need to eat too, but/and we do have a bit of a competition going for the berries!) Happy Sunday, all.
It's shaping up to be a foggy 4th of July weekend in SF. Here are some recent photos from the St. Mark's Garden. The greens in the paper bags were for the Diamond Diners lunch at St. Aidan's this week. Happy 4th everyone!
I can't believe that the time between Easter and Memorial Day went by so quickly.... Potatoes and flowers from SF on a Memorial Day that swings back and forth between cloudy and sunny.....
Happy Easter flowers from the Little Red Hen garden, the tree in our front yard, and our sidewalk plants. A beautiful day of sun and hope...
This is a VERY belated post to show off the beautiful new redwood planter boxes at St. Mark's. These are thanks to a generous grant from St. Mark's, to my husband Page who did the planning and with our friend Nick who did the constructing. Kris and I have been adding mulch and plants and the garden looks beautifully energized! Mother nature has helped with lots of nice rain. We're ready for spring!
Lots of rain has meant lots of greens at the Little Red Hen garden! These went to Diamond Diners for February. More to come....
