We received a check from Wegmans for $250. We’ll be using this money to fix the beds that are falling apart. To date, we have onions, carrots, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage planted and growing well. Lorien Duske’s Girl Scout troop (#41976) came with dirt and compost to plant the potatoes in one of the cages. The potatoes were donated by Lyn Bassett. The caging material was donated by Laurie Young and Dave Donohue. Kay and Bev have planted heirloom sweet potatoes that Kay got from her Aunt. This sweet potato line has been going for almost 100 years. Christi Dunning got us 50 packages of seeds from Seeds of Change which is where we got the tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and zucchini we’ve got growing under our growing lights at home. Joan Mitchell has donated Rosemary, Lemon Balm, Basil, Oregano and Thyme to the garden. We were given the compost from our UUFP neighbor Rich up the street at Becca’s Birds who sells chicken and duck eggs.  Quite a few others have donated their time. I’d say the UUFP Vegetable Garden is doing well thanks to the combined effort of our UUFP community. June 4th at 11am is the next planting date. We could use marigolds, petunias, peppermint and more of any herb or flower that helps a vegetable garden.
