I am lucky enough to garden in three places - at St. Mark's church, at the Little Red Hen garden, and at St. Aidan's church. Yesterday I brought the bounty of each garden to the Free Farm Stand in the mission - greens and carrots and basil and berries from St. Mark's, beautiful dahlias and herbs that a fellow gardener from Little Red Hen gave me to bring over (thank you Mary!), and greens and carrots and radishes from St. Aidan's gardens at the church and at Little Red Hen. I also have catnip from my friend Kris to give away at the Farm stand (thank you Kris!) and lemon verbena to dry to give away as well. Last but not least, I couldn't resist adding a photo of the yellow roses at St. Mark's - which make me smile...and which seem like the last hurrah of summer!
It's been a little while since I've posted, and in that time we've had more and more and more greens at the Little Red Hen Garden! The kale keeps coming and the spinach has been particularly abundant. I've planted cabbage for the first time, and we have some new chard growing as well. Also coming - zucchini, beets, carrots and potatoes. For our Diamond Diners senior lunch last week we had a huge harvest of greens for salad. Slides below, with thanks for our wonderful Diamond Heights climate that fosters such great growth!
