What is in harvest? What bugs are we seeing in the garden right now? What is coming up in June and Summer weather? Check out this two minute FAST Update in the Community Garden to see what is happening right NOW.
Radishes are one of my favorite vegetables to grow. Easy, early and tasty, they signal spring harvest. They make dynamite pickles and are a great way to use fresh harvested radishes from your garden. Jenny and I are at it again with a quick and easy two-minute video to show you how to grow, harvest and prepare spicy radish pickles.

There is a grant opportunity for organizations such as community gardens, urban farms, schools, or food education groups to receive up to $10,000 in funding to support their work. This is for work done in the 43203 and 43205 Zip Codes. Do not delay! This is an outstanding opportunity. RFP’s due May 9th
PLEASE review the Grant RFP and details closely and note this has a very short time frame in order to disburse remaining grant funds to meet end of grant time lines. The grant aligns with the Food for a Long Life project that OSU Extension County, Family and Consumer Sciences participates in.
Jenny and I were back in the garden and the kitchen to create a healthy and delicious salad made from home grown spinach planted last fall, grown over winter and harvested fresh from the demonstration garden. The spinach salad can be topped with any number of different fruits, nuts and cheeses as well. Enjoy!
Would you like to learn how to grow over winter? Here is a virtual class recorded this past fall that will demonstrate the technique so that you can harvest homegrown spinach in the late winter and early spring.
