A watermelon seed snuck in with a tomato

One of our chickens turned out to be a rooster

 

 

The interns preserved the spring flavor of dill by making dill vinegar

 

Uptown Summer assistant Alfonso and intern Peter helped fix the high tunnel door

 

Uptown Summer participant Angeles captured blooming anise hyssop and chamomile near the gate at CCG.

The southern border of CCG sports vigorous grapevines.

CCG produced an abundance of strawberries, blackberries, and cherries in 2020.

Uptown Summer participants harvested fresh food nearly every day from CCG. Underripe blackberries and a stand of bee balm can be seen on the right.

CCG Garden Coordinator Alexis holds a milkweed pod. Milkweed, the only food of the monarch butterfly caterpillar, is edible to humans if prepared correctly.

Uptown Summer participant Angeles captured this monarch butterfly resting on a blooming squash plant at CCG.
