Big Okra & Round II of the Garden Watermelon

Today we had a productive day of watering, weeding, clearing out herb beds, and harvesting! We assessed the herbs and decided to nix the chives and keep the mint. We’re planning to plant some more herbs (basil, parsley…?) soon – TBD! After we got the manual labor out of the way, we got straight to picking beans, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, beets, okra, and a watermelon. Some stars were the refugee beans, a heritage variety from the Thomas Jefferson Heritage Foods garden, and our second ripe n delicious watermelon of the season!
