Eating deep in the season is recommended for a healthy diet. When you have your own garden, you have to harvest and eat what you are growing when it's ready. This has been a busy year, with volunteering and work but here are photos of the urban garden. See the news section for information on the new community garden that's taken root on the Island section of Jersey City.

Homegrown salad
This is a mix of cherry tomatoes, nasturtiums, mesclun mix, basil and chives. A dash of oil and vinegar and it's ready to eat

The box with wire fencing is necessary on a cliff where critters such as skunks, racoons, groundhogs, squirrels and possums hang out. Varmints love to sample tomatoes, greens, cukes, etc. and then toss them!

This lily is still going after 25 years!!

We've had a great season for butterflies. Many tiger and black swallowtails and this type pictured. They and the bees love the Mimosa tree.
