VegHeadz Garden update

Veggies harvested last week
We wanted to show off our haul of veggies from the VegHeadz garden for the past couple of weeks.  All were delivered to the Homeless Shelter where Food Services Director, Bill Schack, says they use them in salads, soups, stir fries, and veggie lasagna.  We've donated over 120 lbs. of vegetables this year to help furnish healthy food for those in need. 

The bugs have been kind to us throughout this season.  We've seen some worms in cucumbers and squash, but very few stinkbugs, corn worms, squash borers, and the other usual suspects.  We're keeping our fingers crossed.  I'm sure Laurie's good supply of perennials which attract pollinators and predator bugs are playing a large part.

We've had plenty of tomatoes and peppers on our plants, so pollination isn't a factor, but few fruit on squash and cucumbers.  Just another garden mystery. 

This week's crop

Green Filet beans.  We've had a good crop this year
