Coffee grounds are a great source of slow-release nitrogen. And it's organic! If your plants are lacking in the element N, apply coffee grounds around the base of your plants. For a fast-acting liquid fertilizer, dilute the grounds with water. Use about a half-pound can of wet grounds in a five-gallon bucket of water.

Today was Nick's last day with us before moving to West Virginia. He's been with us since the garden's inception and we're going to miss his constant presence at the garden. Nick (in white shirt) and Cesar building a hoop house where we'll put our starts and seeds in. Thanks Nick for all your help! We'll miss you!

Harry presenting his 'unusual' vegetable during our Board Meeting: sin qua, which means “silk gourd”. One of the many uses of the sin qua can be as a sponge when you peel the outer layer of the vegetable.

Here's the dish that Harry made using sin qua. It was yummy!
