How delicious to have a spot of rain for the garden.

The corn looks fine, but the garden is dry. Or is it July? Yes, it's July. Happy Seventh of July! The rainwater collection system is two-thirds empty and empties ever so slowly.
And what is the critter at right? Oh, we have so much to learn in our demonstration garden.

There are hours when the garden is for the birds. Sparrows. Robins, Pigeons. Nothing very exotic; this is industrial South End, after all.

This view of the garden used to be blocked by a five-foot pile-tall of great dirt donated by Wallace Farm in Huntersville (Diary, April 24). But that was before more than a dozen raised beds were installed and volunteers carted the pile away into the beds. So it is time to seek another donation of dirt. If you'd be willing to make a restricted donation to Friendship Trays in support of this roughly $350 purchase, please call Lucy at 704-333-9229.
Later in the day, students from the Freedom School at First Presbyterian Church were in the kitchen for a visit, then went out to the garden to get an up-close look at the plants that provide some of the kinds of vegetables they eat.
