What a glorious day to be out in the garden! A big thank you to Xe, Melody, Katie, and Chris for helping to finish off planting our remaining plants and seeds. Also, thank you to Victoria for picking up the straw bales to help keep the weeds down. Danielle and Drew were out with the CCS crew working on their side of the garden, too. So fun to have so many people in the garden! It is going to be a great year!

It's been a long time since our last post, but we'll catch up now that we've planted our 2016 Giving Garden!

Yesterday a team of planters put our initial crops in the ground.  Tomatoes, carrots, greens, cucumbers, melons and squash are in, with more to come.
We've already delivered asparagus and rhubarb to the food shelf, and will have early greens, onions and strawberries soon.  It's going to be a good year!

Eight Pounds of Strawberries!

Thanks to multiple volunteers who cleaned and harvested this week, today we delivered these scrumptious strawberries to Open Door Pantry.  Delightful to the eye, sweet to the taste and healthy for a treat.

That is why we love our gardens!

Another beautiful day for a walk over to the garden to plant lettuce and tomatoes.

Passed by the turtles sunning and the swallows patrolling for insects. 

 Then a big turkey marched out of the woods and announced himself.
This garden!

Beautiful day for a walk to the garden!  Still a little muddy but the plants we put in last week look good.  

And we had a nice walk back to the desk after enjoying the sunshine.

First Delivery of 2015!  Joan picked a bunch of asparagus and will deliver to Open Door this afternoon.  We like to saute a little minced garlic and onion in olive oil, roll the asparagus in it, then roast at 400 till the asparagus turns bright green.  You can sprinkle Parmesan or Romano and some sea salt and pepper on it if you like.  Tasty treat!

Blue Skies Sunshine Rhubarb Asparagus

We met down in the Main garden today to dig up some strawberry and raspberries to pass along to Open Door's gardeners.  We found spring asparagus growing in the shade of the raspberries.  
We'll be able to pick the asparagus and rhubarb next week, and judging by these flowers, won't be long till strawberry picking time.
