Delicious cherry tomatoes were harvested this week.

It was a busy week at the Community Teaching Garden as we transplanted, weeded, and shared great food. After last week’s heat wave, the crisp weather was appreciated at the garden with most students staying each night until the last bit of sun was setting.

We started the week by utilizing the unused space at the back of the Community Teaching Garden by transplanting rhubarb from the Ethan Allen Homestead site. It will be exciting to have plentiful rhubarb at both garden sites in the future! Here’s a look at our process.

Rhubarb needs space, which was provided by digging deep and spread out holes.

The third Community Teaching Garden potluck of the summer was a success with lots of delicious food to share from savory to sweet choices. There was a great mix of students from both classes with friends and family joining us, too. The potluck was a great way to end a beautiful week at the garden.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to
    help fix this issue?
