You can save seeds that performed well for you this year to plant during the next gardening season!

🌱You must wait until the seed is fully ripe before you harvest.
🌱Spread out seeds in a warm and breezy area so they can thoroughly dry out.
🌱Store the seeds in a jar located in a cool and dry area.

Do you have any seed saving tips? Let us know in the comments.

We have enjoyed gardening with you all this season! As we approach fall, it's time to prepare for garden clean-up.

All community gardens, unless otherwise noted, close for the season on October 15th.

Here are some garden clean up instructions for you (depending on your plot type):

🌱All Plots: Non-plant material (stake, all string, cages, ect.) must be removed and carried out. Please DO NOT use on-site garbage or dumpsters.

🌱Plowed Plots: Please remove ALL large stalky material (corn, sunflower, broccoli, kale and other brassica stems). All other plant material can be chopped up into smaller pieces and left in your plot to increase organic matter and help improve soil.

🌱Raised beds: Please remove everything, including plants, by November 1st, so that only soil remains. Shake off as much dirt from the
plants as possible to keep soil in the beds. Put plants on the grass by the curb, NOT the compost area or road. We will be in touch once the City has notified us which dates we can start to place plant material on the curb. Olde North Gardeners, please use space by the "No Parking" sign on Smith Street. 5th Street gardeners, please put plants next to the tree.

🌱No-till plots: Please remove everything, including plants, by November 1st so that only the soil remains. Please cut the plants at ground level (roots can be left in the soil). Put plants on the grass by the curb, NOT the compost area or road. We will be in touch once the City has notified us which dates we can start to place plant material on the curb.

Here's an Eastern Bumble Bee that was spotted in our gardens. 🐝

According to the UW-Extension Bee Guide, the Eastern Bumble Bee is “the most common bumble bee found in Wisconsin, as well as the easiest to identify! This species has bee found to be stable, or perhaps even increasing in abundance."

Have you seen any cabbage butterflies near your garden?

“The [cabbage] butterfly lays individual eggs on the underside of the outer leaves. The larvae are tiny, green, velvety-looking caterpillars that are first seen when they’re only a tenth of an inch or so, but quickly grow to about an inch long. For most home gardeners, scouting for the caterpillars and removing them by hand is often the most effective method for control.”

Have you spotted any friendly critters in your garden? Here's a shot of a Northern Leopard Frog that one gardener saw!

Here's a bit about the frog from the U.S. National Park Service: “Historically, the northern leopard frog was found throughout most of Canada and the U.S., except the southeastern states. Since the 1970s, northern leopard frog populations have declined significantly throughout the species’ range, especially in western Canada and the western U.S. It has been largely extirpated from much of its former habitat in the southwestern U.S. states.”

Join Planting for a Purpose so that everyone can have the fruits and vegetables they need!

Planting for a Purpose is a program for gardeners to plant a plot and donate fresh produce to local food pantries. Last year we had 8,183lbs donated to local pantries across Brown County which is a 7,237lb increase from 2017!

🌱Who Can Get Involved?
Any gardener, novice or veteran, who wants to give back via gardening can get involved. Whether you have a 4' x 8' raised bed or a garden spanning over an acre, you can pledge to plant and donate excess produce or a specific portion of your harvest!

🌱How to Get Involved:
Sign up to be part of Planting for a Purpose online at https://www.browncountywi.gov/departments/extension-brown-county/community-gardens/planting-for-a-purpose/ or by calling (920) 391-4660. Then, get gardening! Once you have produce ready to donate, take a look at our list of pantries to find one near you.
