Summer Care Takers
Summary of What You Can Do to Help
  • Cut bouquets and remove dead flowers (deadheading)
  • Weed out Borage plants (plenty more will come back)
  • Harvest fruit and veg as shown on garden map and key
  • Water plants with blue flags by hand
  • Extra credit weed outside of front gate (leave flowers to set seed)
  • Sweep up steps and rake back gravel from stairs
Tips for a great visit:
  1. Pack a picnic and stay for a while.
  2. Bring vases, jars, buckets, foil, or rubber bands to easier take flowers home.
  3. Bring bags or baskets to more easily harvest food.
    1. If you dig potatoes (in bed 11 only) take note of the irrigation line and dig gently around it, better yet just the the three lines out of the way and then replace when done digging.
    2. If harvesting lettuce consider just removing the larger outside leaves and leaving the plant there for future harvests
    3. don't forget to harvest zuchinni
