PJC Farming Update: Heirloom Vegetables Growing & Herbs Ready for First Harvest

After some arduous workdays and many seed and seedling donations from Sow True Seed, Southern Seed Exposure, and Grow and Share, the PJC Farming project is off to a green start. The half-acre in production has southern heirloom varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, melons, and pollinator-friendly flowers, as well as jalapeños, amaranth, tomatillos, basil, dill, sugar peas, and the mexican herbs epazote and cilantro. Some of the dill and basil look about ready for their first harvest.
