Summer 2017

This is an update on the Strafford Edible Pocket Park, a volunteer project in South Strafford Village. A beautiful new sign was recently created by Will Cooney. Bill Goulet, staying with us for the summer and fall, somehow made the handsome signpost without proper tools. A smaller sign will soon be hung on the side of the Red Barn.

A few weeks ago, in early summer, there was a riot of colorful Lupines in the park (above and below.)

In July, Evening Primroses, Bee Balm, and Shasta Daisies are brightening the park. Berries and fruit are starting to appear.

Two benches by the river. On the right is Eva's Bench, overlooking her blueberry patch.
Eva's blueberries are thriving. Later in the summer, they'll be blue!
Cone flower (Echinacea) and Yarrow (Achillea)
One of the two picnic tables overlooks the river. Use it!
Hazelbert bushes line the fence. They started as bare sticks, but this year there will be nuts.
Some of the plum trees may bear heavily this year -- others, not so much.
Below, two views in the park. Visit soon if you haven't already done so.
