As August rolls in, we're getting new crops in the garden as well as replanting for fall harvests of cool weather crops. Below are pictures of our zinnias and the first of our tomatoes to ripen this season. Both the zinnias and tomatoes should be exploding within the next couple of weeks so come check out our farm stand Wednesdays from 11:30 to 1:30 in front of the Chapel.

Our farm stands are a great opportunity for members of the campus community to come and meet the garden crew, ask questions about produce and cooking ideas, or get advice on whatever is disrupting your own garden. We also love hearing from others new ways to use the vegetables and herbs we produce or how much they've been enjoyed. If you would like a large quantity of a specific item, you can email Heather Ellis Lynch to make sure that we have enough of what you'd like. Next week we should be adding tomatoes, summer squash, watermelon, eggplant, and beans to our list of delicious produce!
