The harvests keep getting bigger and tastier as the season moves forward. We gradually seem to be winning the battle against wireworms – they have been eating our transplants’ roots at the David Thompson Schoolyard Market Garden through the spring. This week we planted all sorts of transplants: kale, zucchini, pac choi, gai lan and lots more head lettuce. The first crop of peas have come off the vine with more on the way and next week will mark the first harvest of our overwintered fava beans! Possibly most exciting are the garlic scapes that have shown their beautiful curly selves – an indication that the garlic below ground is starting to size up. Stop by the farm sometimes and watch our veggies grow!
