Bruce and Lance harvested Chard and Winterbor Kale from the JA bed, lettuces (Sea of Red, Forellenschluss and Nevada from B4, Raven zucchini from B2, Trombetta squash from C1 and Romanesco squash from AB10. Lance also brought in a ripe Trombetta squash from Mark’s home garden. All produce was delivered to the Open Heart Kitchen at the Asbury UMC Fellowship Hall.
Lettuces (42 Cimarron and 42 Bibb #299 were planted in an 8-inch hexagonal pattern on bed K6. The 84 plants occupied roughly 10 lineal feet of the 4’0 wide bed. A small hand-full of the Home Depot steer manure blend was added to each transplant hole. A 20 ft. long EMT frame with deer fencing was moved from the B4 bed to K6 to protect the new lettuce transplants from White-crowned Sparrows and other birds (turkeys in the past). BEC
