Dear Farmers,
I spent this morning at the garden... so much cooler than the last few days.. it was refreshing! Saw a bunch of beautiful yellow finches near the sunflowers and colorful butterflies.! A new pile of mulch arrived early this morning. I weeded and mulched the new pepper beds, butternut squash, and patty pan/ cotton patch. I took away the diseased parts of the plants to keep the good parts healthy and keep bugs away.

Also, raked up the grass clippings and threw them in the compost bin. This is very important or else the clippings will kill the grass. PLEASE MULCH vegetables with new mulch rather than clippings which contain lots of grass seed. if you mulch with clippings, grass will start popping up all over the beds.
