Spring was taking her time in arriving this year. And then the lockdowns to fight the spread of the Coronavirus put planting on hold for a couple of months. But by the long weekend in May, things were back on track with safety and hygiene protocols for COVID-19 in place.
The hot weather during June and July were ideal for spurring on plant growth especially with an adequate supply of water available from the church to keep the plants well hydrated.
By the end of July, you could see how the crops were coming along. It looks like there'll be another great harvest of fresh vegetables in later summer and fall.
Congratulations to all the gardeners and kudos to Jill McCullough and Anica James for guiding things along into the second great season for St Luke's Community Gardens.
