The Teaching Garden
In the Teaching Garden, new signage is up, the tomato variety demonstration is looking fantastic, the edamame soybeans have gotten big enough that I needed to move the sign to the front, 4.5 lbs of green beans were picked this week, the okra and peppers are coming on, and the healthy squash and zucchini are bearing well. Agent Simpson has held a tomato taste test at the Farmer's Market and more.
