Gardeners at the Ron Ory Community Garden Plots this summer enjoyed an abundant harvest of tomatoes, peppers and other vegetables that thrive in the sunshine. With the gardening season winding down by October 12, gardeners have a chance to reflect on the summer and ready their plots for the end-of-season cleanup.

“We had a successful gardening year, in spite of a later start that was due to restrictions related to the pandemic,” said Nature Center Manager Angelique Harshman.

Volunteer Manager Lynnette Hoole noted that gardeners made a special effort to take good care of their plots and to adhere to the social distancing guidelines, which created a friendly environment where people felt safe and healthy.
