Fall is upon us and the garden committee is working to close down for the season.
We had a very successful season this year with a bountiful harvest of strawberries, garlic, snap peas, kale, arugula, green beans, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a final fall harvest of 18 pounds of peppers.
Many thanks to Mary and Sam who were instrumental in the success of the garden, sharing the work and keeping everything organized.
The last planting of the season is garlic; the cloves were put in the ground in late October. We will soon be collecting seeds from the Hyacinth beans and saving them for planting again next year.
Our next project is to trim down the garden rows, cover them with garden fabric and top it all off with a thick layer of mulch. This will help to keep the rows neat and will not have to weedwhack so often.
If interested in helping in our UUFP gardens, please contact Kay. She will gladly put you to work!
Thank you, the UUFP Garden Committee
