August Update

Time has certainly flown this summer! It seems like just yesterday when we were transplanting the tomatoes which are now ripening!! (see below)
Yellow pear, large red, and plum tomatoes!
Everything is going strong- the kale and pac choi transplants had a rough time with flea beetles but the ones that made it are doing well now. We have arugula, lettuce, beets, radishes, spinach, scallions, and carrots all sprouting too!

The number of people on campus is starting to dwindle which has affected the turnout at Friday dinners, but without fail the food has still been delicious. This past Friday we made a bunch of pesto to freeze and enjoy later in the year too! Here are some more current pictures of the gardens and what we're harvesting:
We have a sign at Kellogg now too!! yay!
Acorn squash
Biblical cucumbers
Green beans
The soil in Kellogg seems better for carrots, they're straight and not four-pronged...
Hilary's great-grandmother's beans are getting huge!
Peppers have flowers finally
   Eggplant, radicchio, and endive
Yellow squash and Zucchini
