Some shots from our first potluck at the garden. It was super fun and delicious, and hopefully we'll throw another one later this summer! A big thanks to friend of the garden, photographer Erika Rich, for these beautiful pictures!

We installed a metal roof on our tool shed today! Much thanks to everyone who came and helped! We are now ready to proceed this Fall with constructing a rainwater harvesting system that will capture rainwater from the roof's surface area. Hopefully we can significantly reduce our water consumption from the utility through this system (assuming that it rains at some point...) This project will be led by the UT student group Engineers for a Sustainable World

summer begins!

We've been getting good harvests lately! Tomatoes of all colors (red, orange, yellow, green, pink), summer squash, tomatillos, swiss chard, peppers, cucumbers, beans.....

We'll be donating squash and peppers to the Open Door Lunch for the homeless this week. 

We've also just planted many new things. Look for watermelon, pumpkin, lima beans, zinnias, sunflowers, peanuts, and okra coming up soon!
