This weekend Eagle Candidate Sam Holland and Troop 110 completed the corn house project. We now have a very creative, walk-in solution to our squirrel problem. My congratulations to Sam for a job well done. I know it was a challenging project. It will serve the community for years to come.

So, join me in the garden this coming Wednesday, around 9:45 a.m. I will be sowing corn and lima beans (succotash garden if you please). I know it's a little late in the season, but I want to use the corn house immediately. I will cover the bed with a summer weight fabric to keep moisture in until the seeds germinate.

The tomatoes are really coming along. We should be able to harvest them in a few weeks. At that time I plan to also harvest the basil: we will be able to donate a great summer salad to our local lunch program at All Saints B.H. The tomatoes were a donation from Armstrong Garden Centers, and I would like to thank them again for their incredible generosity to our garden, and also Whole Foods B.H. for their ongoing commitment.
