In the Garden

By Norma Jean Worden-Rogers


Thank you to all that came out to the inaugural bake oven kick off this past Saturday, June 21, at the Sackville Community Garden. The event was well attended with over 120 people braving the wet weather to come see this magnificent piece of art in action.

A big thank-you goes out to Renaissance Sackville for funding the project, as well as the builders - Scott Harris, of Fundy Stonecraft built the oven with help from John Crawford, Daimen Hardy, Graeme Bancroft, Elliot Allan, Ross Galbraith and Filip Jaworski, making the project a big success.

Thank you to Marsha Lemos for creating a delectable menu for us – hand pizzas, stew, roasted apples and dates, roasted parsnips, baked potatoes, yum! In the future the oven will be used for community firings that will be advertised and be open to the entire community to bake in. In the meantime, dust off your grandmother’s bread recipes and have them ready for the next event!


The Sackville Almanac – Late June Plantings

Plant in succession!What in the world does that mean? By planting ‘in succession’ it will ensure you have veggies consistently throughout the summer.  As temperatures get warmer, greens tend to ‘bolt’. This is when the plant thinks that it is done producing the leaves that we eat and thinks that its life is over. The ‘bolt’ or ‘shoot’ that comes up and flowers is how the greens spread their seed in preparation to grow the next year.  If you plant greens throughout the season, you will always be able to eat salads without having to worry about bolting! Other crops that can be planted in succession are peas, beans, kale, radishes, etc.
