How Does Your Garden Grow?

Remember the child’s rhyme that celebrates flowers in bloom? Right now, Harvest Farm Community Garden is a wonderful place to check out the vibrant colors of a surprising array of flowers. A number of plot owners have given over space just for the pure beauty of the blooms. Pollinators love several of these, as well. There for your viewing pleasure are geranium, marigold, roses, calendula, Canna lily, Gerber daisy and Anise hyssop, among others. And now that the growing season is in full swing, squash blossoms abound, and the yellow of tomato blossoms wink at any passerby.
