Monmouth Community Garden: Ready for Harvest
Check out what's growing on the Bates Mill Store + Factory lawn!
The bees have been loving the acorn squash flowers! It makes us happy to see them out and about pollinating.
The red cabbage is almost ready for harvest. Just a few more days!
The Monmouth Community Garden isn't just for veggies. Audrey always plants a selection of flowers on the edge of her garden plot. These marigolds are actually a natural way to help keep pests away.
The rainbow chard could be made into a bouquet of it's own.
Tomatoes are just beginning to turn red. These guys have come a long way since we last snapped their photo.
A spindly tomato seedling from our first post. They grow up so fast!
You know how it is: plant just a few zucchini seeds in the spring and you'll have them coming out of your ears in no time. Looks like many of our gardeners will be eating zucchini every day for the next few weeks! Need cooking inspiration? We found a list of 46 Sweet and Savory Zucchini Ideas from Crazy for Crust. How many of these dishes can you make by the end of the season? We challenge you!
Have your own garden-harvest recipes to share? We'd love to hear your favorites. Tell us all about them in the comment section!
