Out at LaSalle Square Unity Garden the harvesters are slowly arriving to see what is ready to harvest . They have been harvesting Kale , Mustards , Radish , Lettuce , Peas , and Spinach . By the end of this week we should have our first summer Squash , and even a Tomato or two .
Our first ever bike tour on Saturday was a success . We had about 25 people ride the 28 mile tour of 11 gardens . Many said they enjoyed seeing the city from a bike . Others said the saw gardens they drive by every day , but did not know they were there .
After we had a group of school kids out 2 weeks ago we have had several parents out because the kids said they should come visit. Its great to hear the kids enjoyed the tour of the Garden .
Heather & Sara helped LaSalle Academy finish planting the garden , and the kids gave us a small gift and a great thank you card for or help with their garden.
