Gardening Update



Finally! I had some cucumbers this last week, and they were fantastic!
















Also getting a bunch of tomatoes to ripen... it's taken a while, but there are tons more than last year. (and surprisingly? The expensive plants I got from Burpee were outperformed by grocery store and free plants from my neighbor. Go figure!)

Harvest Fair!

Seattle Tilth's Harvest Fair is next Saturday! There are a few classes you can sign up to take (for around $5 each, on things like composting and Winter gardening) but also tons of things for free. They'll have a farmer's market, urban farm animals like chickens and goats, and just visiting the gardens there is enough to give you a lot of great new ideas. Check it out if you get a chance! 10am-5pm, Saturday, September 12th. Seattle Tilth, behind the Good Shepherd Center in the Wallingford neighborhood (4649 Sunnyside Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103).
