Yesterday was our official last day of the season at The Secret Garden.
The first job at hand is always picking up garbage.
From an aesthetic point of view, it sure makes a difference when litter is in its place.
We cleared some of the beds of plants, like these peppers, and potted them up for volunteers to take home.
Sunflowers were planted late and are just now blooming.
We left the eggplant.
And for the first time have watermelon growing so will see how it fares the summer.
A large sign is being made for the compost pile to encourage the community to bring their scraps in. We are hoping to have some nice compost ready for the next garden season.
Even though gardening is over, our group still plans to check on things over the summer, making sure trees and plants are getting enough water. And since I (unfortunately) won't be traveling to the States this year, I'll be one of those people.
