If the Morrisville Community Gardens had been started last year, gardeners might now be harvesting these wonderful vegetables: Green Beens, Beets, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Endive, Leeks, Lima Beans, Onions, Peppers, White Potatoes, Radishes, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Turnips, Zucchini and many assorted Herbs.
Harvesting those will free space in the garden beds for planting vegetables now that will be harvested in the fall: Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Collards, Kale, Kohlrabi and Spinach.
And after our harvest we could join with our neighbors and enjoy these Native Pennsylvania blooming flowers: Common Milkweed, Sundrops, Black-eyed Susan, Black Cohosh, Wild Geranium, Jacob’s Ladder, Joe-Pye-Weed and Bee-Balm.
All of those, along side of our collections of Native Pennsylvania shrubbery – also in bloom: Mountain Laurel, Rosebay, New Jersey Tea, Staghorn Sumac, Buttonbush, Wild Hydrangea, Ninebark, Summersweet and Elderberry.
As you can see, the month of July in the Morrisville Community Gardens will be filled with natural beauty and very busy gardening families! Smiling children in the gardens working alongside parents and grandparents, neighbors greeting neighbors as a volunteer docent guides visitors through the botanical collections. Each and every one enjoying the bounty of our community efforts! But… this will only happen if you voice your support and join as a member.
If you would like to garden with us, or simply enjoy relaxing in a peaceful park setting surrounded by flowering plants and lush, colorful vegetable gardens then please do these two things:
1) Call Borough Hall at (215) 295-8181 and let them know that you support the Morrisville Community Gardens, and,
2) Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up as a member.
These gardens cannot become a reality without YOU!
