Growing like crazy!

The Campbell Community Garden is in full veggie production now! We are busy harvesting as well as planning for our fall and winter gardens.

Campbell Community Garden Harvest Sharing beds; our herb bed is in front, with tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant behind; out of view are cucumbers, squash, leeks, beans, and more!
The Campbell Garden Harvest Sharing Program has been great for our gardeners who are on vacation or otherwise not able to harvest their veggies. Between vacationing gardeners and our dedicated donation gardens, we are donating 60 pounds of veggies a week.

Produce donated on August 20th includes summer squash, cucumbers, dill, thyme, basil, parsley, leeks, eggplant, a few tomatoes and peppers, kale & chard.
It is amazing how quickly the summer squash and cucumbers grow!  What to do with out of control zucchini? See the video from Mavis at  One Hundred Dollars a Month:

As soon as it is time to rip out the squash and cucumber plants, we will have new things to plant in their places. We intend to grow year round in the Campbell Garden.
