Rain has made watering the garden very easy this summer, but it hasn’t made volunteer sessions in the garden so simple! These swallowtail butterfly caterpillars munching happily on our parsley were the only live critters who got their photo taken earlier this week. We human critters from Trillium and Daylily Garden Clubs and the Washington County Master Gardener program worked hard to harvest and get out of the downpour. Hence, no photos! Thanks, ladies!
Yukon Gold and French Fingerling potatoes ready for donation!
Washington County Horticulture Society members come out to the garden for the first time!
Thank you, Chuck, for your master soybean shucking, and thank you to Joan and Helen for grabbing all those tomatoes! We picked 47 pounds of produce together.
Willis Insurance Agency volunteers help harvest 150 pounds!
Thanks for making the drive to Lake Elmo! You are much appreciated for giving of your time on a soggy morning.
