Fall Garden Planting @ MHA


Wow!  How time flies, especially this time of year!  I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted!  Lots going on in my horticultural world these days!

Today I had the opportunity to garden with 4 willing folks at the Mental Health Association’s Opal Smith Day Center.



We planted a variety of fall greens like kale and swiss chard.  This location is also one of the People’s Garden projects I work with.
