From an email: “A group of us in Bloomingdale are attempting to raise funding to support construction of the Tricia McCauley Memorial Herb Garden in LeDroit Park, with construction scheduled to begin early in the New Year.”

For those not familiar with Tricia you can read about her tragic story here. She was a beloved member of Bloomingdale and so many other communities. RIP.

The fundraiser says:

“Friends and family of Tricia McCauley, in partnership with Common Good City Farm, are honoring her legacy through the creation of the Tricia McCauley Memorial Fund. The fund will preserve Tricia’s love of herbalism and teaching through supporting the ongoing cultivation of the medicinal herb garden, now The Tricia McCauley Memorial Herb Garden, as well as herbalism workshops at Common Good City Farm.

Thanks to Ben for sending:

“Five years ago you posted my attempt to grow insanity peppers in Mt Pleasant for my fiancee. I had more luck this year (we are in NE now). The peppers in the picture are a mixture of Trinidad Scorpion “Butch T” and my new hotness, the merciless Reaper of Carolina. My spice loving (now) wife is pleased, these peppers were previously the hottest in the world. The rumored Pepper X is supposed to be hotter but remains allusive to acquire, I will keep you posted if I manage to grow some of those next year and not “brain my damage” between now and then.”

Thanks to Betsy for the update from her 16th Street Heights Haul:

“Update: it’s a melon! (I was wrong. I thought it was a squash.) It tastes like a slightly earthier and less flavorful cantaloupe, though maybe it just needed more time on the vine.”

And thanks to all who entered their hauls this year!!

Great Garden Haul was made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
