Now is the busiest time for planting our ‘flagship’ veggies- all of the ones we get excited about picking up at the farmers markets, getting in our CSA boxes, or best of all, ripening on the vine in our very own gardens! At Common Ground Garden the grains are maturing and beginning to harden (rye being the last to mature), as the tomatoes and zucchini are just going into their respective beds. Our sunflowers have grown high enough to escape the slug onslaught, and our basil is looking small but plump beneath the sunflower canopy. Soon we’ll be planting our cucumbers, beets, and beginning to plant summer grains like amaranth. Wish us luck! And stop by to see it all at its peak during our Edible Garden Tour.
