The end of July is nigh, and the weather has been giving us a nice respite at the moment. The garden has transformed into its summer skin, with fall quick on its heels. Now is the time to seed the plants for autumn. Beets, carrots, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage will all be on the menu for the Media Food Bank.
For anyone facing a mosquito problem, there are 11 plants that help to repel mosquitoes, and they are discussed in detail here. Many of them are planted at the vegetable garden!
Big thanks to the volunteer crew on crafting detailed signs for the pollinator habitat! They look beautiful, and are made from wooden cutouts of different shapes that were painted and coated with polyurethane.
