During our garden hours this week we were able to harvest a lot of vegetables. We were shocked that so many veggies were still growing this late in the season! We harvested carrots, beets, tomatoes, fava beans, swiss chard, arugula and kale. We also were able to water the plants that were still producing.
We even got to eat some of the food too! It was surprising that all the food was so flavorful, even with it being so late in the season and having had frosts already.
In addition to eating the veggies, we also watered the kale, carrots, beets and arugula in the Monsoon Garden.
Overall, it was a successful day at the Colton Community Garden. We are happy to see the vegetables still producing and we have so much arugula that we don’t know what to do with it all!
