Community garden today and 4 weeks ago

Wow, I have to say everything grows in this warm weather. We had some real hot days in the beginning of the week. Since yesterday it is cloudy and we had rain off and on.

I went to the community vegetable garden today for my hours weeding. I remembered to take my camera with me to take photos and compare it with the ones I have taken on the 23 November 2012( 4 weeks back)

Community garden:reap the fruit of your work

Today we had a wonderful hour of work at our Time Bank Veggy Garden again. Everything is growing.

Carrots, beetroot , onions, pumpkins, peas, beans, corn,  you name it  grows! I also planted some beans last week (only4 I must say) They are also growing

We dug out some  fresh potatoes and divided it between 6 of us who were working today.

There were also some grapefruit and some rhubarb  from the gardens of other Time Bankers.
