Replants are coming. Harvest, harvest, harvest
If you had an Urban Seedling garden last year, chances are that you have garlic in your garden. It is usually planted in the front right two squares, and it is ready to harvest! You can start using it right away fresh, but to get something that you can store in your pantry, you need to cure it.
Pull out all the garlic by the stems and wash off the excess soil. Leave the garlic out in the sun for about 2 weeks until the neck is dry. Cut off the stalks and store in a dark, cool, dry place (like the pantry)
It’s also time to get down to harvesting carrots, beets, onions. If you have a replant plan with us, we will be coming to your house between the 18th of August and the 6th of September to replant lettuces, spinach, radishes, and some bok choy for a fall harvest. Generally speaking, you will be harvesting everything from the front row of your 10′ x 3′ garden bed.
I will email you at least 3 days before we come to replant so that you can harvest at your leisure. The tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, beans and zucchini will stay in your garden until the end of the season (end of October).
For those of you who are planting yourselves, we have seeds and seedlings available for purchase in our greenhouse as of August 16th. We are open Monday to Friday 10 – 4pm If evenings or weekends work better for you, please call ahead to make an appointment.
