Interbay Giving Garden

Winter Veggies

Some of the Gardens want to extend the veggie growing season so that produce can be provided (nearly) year-around. We agreed to try growing a limited number of starts for those who’re going to brave the rains, slugs, and grey days. We’ve started collards, two kinds of chard, tatsoi, and Winter salad greens including lettuces. These WERE ready to go the week of August 12 and a notice was sent to the giving gardens through the listserve. Do let us know how your own winter gardening experience unfolds.

Seattle Giving Gardeners: 2019’s Greens likely ready April 5-6

Assuming the weather continues with mild temperatures and sunny afternoons the greens — Asian greens of various types, a couple of kinds of lettuce, chard and kale will be ready to pick up at the Ballard location the weekend of April 5-6. Hope your beds will be as ready as the plants will be: they’ll need some protection from unexpected storms (such as row cover) and hungry slugs, snails, robins and crows.
