On Friday May 31, a group of OKT’s yard gardeners met at Blandford Nature Center’s farm to pick up their second round of organic, heirloom food plants: zucchini, okra, tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplant, cucmbers, watermelon, peppers and herbs–sage, rosemary, basil, chives and mint. The first plant distribution earleier in May included plants suited to cooler weather such as greens and kohl varieties. Blandford’s Farmer Aaron shared tips on planting and caring for each food plant.

OKT intern, Brooklyn Nicks, was in charge of sowing and growing the food plants in the Blandford Farm greenhouse. Wow Brooklyn! You did good!
