The coming of Fall always brings with it excitement and change at the Trellis Center. This October, we have stayed busy with our greenhouses, garden beds, and pumpkin patch. We had our last two farmer’s markets where we were able to sell our Fall vegetables such as pumpkins and squash. With the end of the farmer’s market season, as well as the cold weather setting in, we began to empty out our garden beds and prepare them for next Spring. This means we have spent time enriching our soil by sifting rocks and plants out of the beds as well as topping them off with leaves to be tilled in later on in the year. Because our garden beds are being closed, we have been focusing our attention on filling the greenhouses with herbs and lettuces. Be sure to look for us at the Ellensburg Holiday Market on November 21st from 9am – 2pm at the Fair Grounds. We will be selling live herbs for all your holiday cooking!
On our recreation side, October gave us many opportunities to enjoy the crisp Autumn days through walking and playing sports outside. We also did a community service project of raking leaves at a local park to keep it clean for everyone to enjoy. A trip to the pumpkin patch was also in order to fully celebrate the Fall festivities. We all took a day to go on a hay ride, visit some petting zoo animals, pick our own pumpkins, and get lost in a corn maze. With all this excitement leading up to Halloween, we threw ourselves a Trellis Halloween party complete with carved pumpkins and a scavenger hunt.
