It’s that time of year! Strawberries are ripening and fresh goods from the garden are close at hand.  Haven’t gotten your strawberry fix yet? Visit one of our members to indulge your taste buds! 

It’s also the time to get your veggie garden moving along, if you haven’t done so already. There are many seedlings still available for you to take under your wing.  It’s not too late to start beans, kale, corn, cucumbers, melons, pumpkins, squash, or melons from seed.  Leafy greens and carrots can still be started from seed as well and can be planted every other week for continued harvest throughout the summer.  Need more information on your vegetables?
