This past Saturday, June 20, we had a lovely and productive median planting day thanks to the ever dedicated and energetic Paul Matalucci. I think that Paul was either a community organizer or a coach or the leader of a pep squad in another life - or maybe all of these! He is leading an amazing community-building and greening initiative for our little part of the city. It looks beautiful and there's more planting to come, so stay tuned....
One of the things I love most about working in urban gardens is the friends I've made along the way. Friends who would never have come into my life if not for gardening - and who have become so dear to me that I can't even remember not knowing them. Photos of a few of those friends are in the slides below, along with some flowers from another friend's (Tree's) All in Common Garden. I am looking forward to meeting new friends at the Diamond Heights median planting day this Saturday June 20 from 9 to noon - so a bit of a shout out for that - come join us if you can!
Just a quick update on a gorgeous Sunday - We had quite a harvest this weekend - the rest of the carrots (just planted more seeds!), the first little cucumbers, a few squash, much kale, and some lettuce. I'm off to the Free Farm Stand now to deliver the harvest. Last Wednesday our veggies went to our Diamond Diners senior lunch program to be a part of the BLT lunch and to take home.
