Since our nursery school graduation (23 tomato transplants moved from the monastery into the vegetable garden) several weeks ago, we have seen great growth. We have had several visitors -- hungry squirrels, perhaps -- who have performed some quality control tests, sampling the lettuce and fennel plants during the first few weeks of their growth. They have assured us that the produce is safe to consume and fortunately, they have found an alternate source of food, allowing us to share in the fresh lettuce and green beans! Sister Mary Roberta is pictured below washing fresh lettuce and below her is a shot of the garden from the tomato patch. Stay tuned for summer garden updates!
