Summer Is Almost Over

It’s hard to believe it’s already August 8th, classes will be starting at the end of the month (I know, I know) and Work & Pick at Eden Hall is almost over! There have been rain cancellations, a lot of patty pan & kale harvests, not enough tomato harvests (yet!), and a ton of leaf mulch has been added to the garden beds. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of Eden Hall’s Work & Pick volunteers. The interns, as well as the Work & Pick Coordinator have also been hard at work with their own projects, so look forward to hearing about the experiences of the interns very soon!

The flowers at Eden Hall have been attracting a lot of pollinators this summer (they look nice, too).

Although we’ve had a lot of issues with flea beetles this summer, the eggplants are finally starting to produce and look better.

Seeds were also just planted during a rainy evening for the Greenhouse Production class that will be starting in a few weeks! Kale, chard, lettuce, broccoli, spinach and cabbage were all seeded, so they should be ready just in time for the students.

Thanks for stopping by!
