Riverside Residence folks came to the GEG late this afternoon to harvest their strawflowers which loomed high. The smaller plants, such as salvia, that were hidden from view can now be admired. The strawflowers are being dried in our shed and will be used in dried floral arrangements.
In the bare spots, the group planted some Red Clover seeds, a green manure that can 'fix' nitrogen. In the spring we will dig the plant under, providing nourishment for future plants. Oooooh, can't wait to see what the bed will look like next year and what plants will be chosen to benefit from today's activity. Throughout the summer, Riverside Residence participants have been enjoying cilantro and parsley from their bed to flavour their dips and dressings.
