The students will plant the raised beds over the next few weeks with easy to grow cool season crops like radishes and lettuce. To get the garden growing, Washington Capitals forwards Chris Brown (right with ball cap) and Stanislav Galiev planted one of the raised beds with kid-friendly herbs that are fun to touch, taste and smell like lavender, chocolate mint, German chamomile, rosemary, parsley, lemon thyme, wild watermelon salvia, and chives.

    secretporcupine:

    Over the course of about a month, the cucumber went from a teeny waist-high plant with a single adorable flower to a roof-climbing monster that churns out 2-4 fruit per week. Every few days, I have to dissuade new branches from trying to latch onto the gutter (I keep redirecting them down and sideways, so that we can reach the flowers to pollinate them). I am in awe of its tenacity.

    Pictured at the bottom is the first fruit it produced - we’ve since harvested and eaten lots more!

    Very nice!

    Canned tomatoes were a success, and I am no longer terrified of canning. Now on to bigger projects.

    It’s amazing how easy it can be, right?

Beets … mmm beets and corn are going gang busters. Toms finishing, carrots are, a bit short at the moment. Zucchini’s have flowered at last, should be getting some soon for the spiralizer.

Looking great!

    Shallots from my garden, over a hundred of them, and they are sweet and delicious. I’ll eat some. I’ll plant the suvivors after frost. If they live through winter, I will have fresh green onions first thing next spring.

    Very very nice! They keep so much nicer than onions, imo. And the flavor is so divine!

Yes! Nice!
