Last weekend's workday

(Here's our happy, sweaty crew at the end of work last Saturday.)

It's been a little while since we've posted, probably because everyone's working a lot or on vacation. Last week we had a great workday, and a good group of folks came out to help! We put together our new picnic table, built a composting bin, tied up some tomatoes and harvested food. We all took home cucumbers, plus squash and hot peppers.

(Yup, that's our new picnic table!)

We also harvested all the radishes, and several of us tried a new food: radish greens! Fellow gardener Laura made pesto out of them for a neighborhood 4th of July cookout. We replaced the radishes with pumpkin seeds. Hopefully we'll have pumpkins by October!

This weekend's workday promises to be a great one--we'll hopefully have some ripe tomatoes to pick, and we'll have breakfast pastries provided by Morning Times Cafe in downtown Raleigh. Thanks Morning Times!
