The Giving Garden OKC
Currently in our little plot we are growing tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, peppers, malabar spinach, melons. We just pulled our bush beans and summer squash and have sown fava beans, carrots, beets and pole beans and even got in a row of potatoes, thanks to my forgetfulness that they were in my pantry. I think the hardest part of this season was that week-long rain; however, it really showed me where the soil needs love. We are looking forward to getting in more fall crops and to continue growing in the winter.

It’s already time to think about fall gardens, and I’ve got broccoli & cauliflower seedlings that will be available for sale in mid-August for anyone wanting to plant them for fall. It can be a bit tricky to start transplants in the heat of the summer, when grasshoppers & cabbage worms are eager to devour any tender little seedlings, but each year I learn a few more tricks for making it work. I’m seeding lettuce, arugula, kale & spinach, green onion transplants now, too. Little Bear, our new kitten, loves playing in the garden while we work and keeps us thoroughly entertained!
This beautiful Summer heat helped produce an incredible bounty of full and delicious tomatoes and spicy peppers. Our home has never seen so much salsa and gazpacho! Looking forward to this August with everyday showing explosions of growth in the okra rows. I’ll start planning for the fall planting season over some fried okra in the coming weeks.

We are having a great experience with finding customers for our farm produce. We have established some locations including Paseo Farmers Market and this has played a big role in selling our produce there (many thanks). We’ll be planting some fall crops soon.
