It Is The Season For A Lot Of Things In The Yarabilba Community Garden!
Summer is quickly approaching so that means watermelons and cucumbers!!! We have some thing a little different this year when it comes to these two… mini varieties!!
Sugar baby watermelon seeds have just been planted and we can not wait to share them with you all. This cute variety of watermelon are small and round and super delicious, and cucamelon / mouse melons little grape size cucumbers with a hint of lime (see photo above).

A new compost pile has been started and once ready will be mixed in with all the beds that are running low or need a little extra nutrient in preparation for a new lot of crops in the coming seasons! We always welcome more grass clipping and mulch donations, this helps keep green waste out of landfill and also helps us with the compost and the continued supply of yummy things being grown (see photo).
