Final Harvest October 3, 2012 Kitchen Garden

Final Harvest – and the gardening goes on!

The final harvest of the the Kitchen Garden took place yesterday, including hairy melons, long-beans, cabbage, kale, as well as fresh herbs of parsley, sage, and rosemary.

We also harvested a good amount of soy beans, considering we had previously picked a full bushel only weeks ago – the gift that keeps giving!  All produce was donated to the North York Harvest Food Bank.

The garden work continues!  A team of volunteers from Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) donated their time today to help clean up the old Alphabet Garden in the Teaching Garden.

They kept rolling right along by rolling logs into place for the camps for kids & children’s programs that take place in the Teaching Garden.

Proud representatives of the PwC Volunteer Team – 13 sets of hands in all helped our regular crew of garden volunteers whip things into shape in the Teaching Garden – ready for planting next Spring!

Knees & Bulbs: As I sit at my desk I’m reminded of the gardening task at hand for next week – I’ll be on my knees planting bulbs!!

I was also reminded of bulb planting when I saw this Leucojum aestivum (Snowflake) today breaking ground in the Demonstration Courtyard.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
