Growing Young Gardeners - Beets, radishes, parsley, and a wooden wing.

Growing Young Gardner's Club. 

Beets, radishes, parsley, and a wooden wing. 

Early harvest continues. Today the youth weeded, thinned plants, and most joyously harvested some of the early yielding vegetables. One unusual find was discovered among the wood chip pathway between the raised beds. 



The Growing Young Gardeners Club 



met for the seventh session at Wheeler Park on 1100 Dorset Street in South Burlington, Vermont on July 23, 2015. 

The Growing Young Gardeners Club is 
collaboration with the Machia Wilderness Camp
and the Burlington Garden Club

This section of our garden is lacking a fence.
Not critter proof.
Any fence makers out there?
