News from LMU Organic community garden by Sue
So overall I think we’ve had a great year so far in spite of droughts and monsoons. Our tomatoes have been amazing and the high tunnels are still producing like mad. The bean beetles were horrid but we got a lot of beans before they did the plants in. Usually the vines survive then come on with another picking not this year. We will have to try something new next year. We started taking down the netting and posts last night to get the field ready for cover crops. Tomorrow Bill will turn the potato field and we will harvest the potatoes and follow with the cover crop there too. The corn is almost done, but we still have lots of peppers, okra, basil. We have cabbage and such started in the greenhouse for fall. In the next week we hope to get more fall stuff in the ground but it’s soooooo hot and dry it’s going to be a challenge.
