What we grow
Our best time of year is October to May. During that time, we have big harvests of greens (lettuce, collards, kale, swiss chard), root vegetables (carrots, beets, potatoes), and, in spring, tomatoes. The most difficult time of year is summer. Due to the scorching heat, our reliable crops are arugula, purple hull peas (black-eyed), eggplant, cucumbers, and okra. Year round we have great herbs: lemon grass, basil, thyme, fennel, mint, oregano, rosemary, and tarragon. We also have fruit trees inside the garden, including tangelo, papaya, limequat, kumquat, orange, grapefruit, mandarinquat, meyer lemon and satsuma. We take care of the community orchard outside the garden fence, which is open to all in the community and has calomondin oranges, mandarin oranges, apples, meyer lemon, plum, pumelo and persimmon.
