Welcome back to the Eckerd Garden!
I spent my summer doing research at Eckerd, and my free time was often dedicated to researching organic gardening in central Florida, planning the garden, and caring for a few summer crops like okra and basil with the help of Cathryn and Sam.
Here's what the garden was doing over the summer:
|Banana tree in mid-June|
|These are the beds in July. We covered most of the beds with black landscaping fabric to suppress summer weed growth--and it worked!|
|We planted squash and pumpkins in July in the hopes of getting Halloween pumkins...|
|Okra's been rolling in daily all summer. It's just now slowing down.|
