The greens (particularly rainbow chard) just keep coming at Little Red Hen garden! Our last harvests have gone to the Diamond Diners senior lunch for the free farmer's market there, and also to the Free Farm Stand in the mission. Despite lack of rain, all is well in the garden...
St. Mark's garden is loving the January rain, and looking great. Here are recent harvests, which went to Martin Luther Towers for the seniors to share. Happy 2020 everyone!
Great New Year's harvest for Diamond Diners senior lunch tomorrow....even in the winter the greens are growing in SF. Happy New Year everyone.....
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.....
