Spring Harvest in the City

Broccoli and red leaf lettuce is being harvested daily at Bates and Arendes in Holly Hills:

Thanks to Missouri Forest ReLeaf for the 10 river birch and 10 eastern red buds. These trees are native to Missouri and are well suited for low canopy interest in a vegetable garden.

Another dedicated Holly Hills gardener is a former strawberry farmer:

Romaine lettuce for dinner tonight. This 4 year old is not scared of our newest members of the garden (in the background)

Thanks to yet another dedicated Holly Hills gardener, we now have 2 hives of European honey bees to help pollinate our flowers...and of course make some delicious honey combs.
