Happy Holidays - and food swaps

As our volunteers keep up the watering rota, harvest delicious crops - some of which turned up at a local fresh produce swap - the blog will take a break until September.

Mary, one of our volunteers, sent this update to the group: "There is much to harvest at Empty Commons: beans, zucchini, chard, some tomatoes, some corn, cucumbers and herbs. The corn is ready when the silks turn brown... we usually husk, put corn into rolling boiling water for five minutes and then eat in the traditional American way 'corn on the cob'. For best results cook and eat right after harvest for the sweetest flavor. Blackberries seem to be everywhere!"

Enjoy the rest of the summer! If you want to join us, please read the first blog post, which has a map showing the garden's location and contact details for the group.
