Work Day #4: Hello Summer!

The first workday of the summer was a great time to reflect on what has been growing and to add more plants.  Highlights of the work include:

  • Making bean tee-pees from locally harvested bamboo
  • Making tomato cages
  • Weeding
  • Watering
  • Planting a polyculture experiment around the cabbages (next post describes this in more detail)
  • Planting corn, chard, peas, beans from seed
  • Planting a row of “Mystery” seedlings that were left over from the groundbreaking ceremony (no one could remember or identify what the plants were in their sprout form)
  • Planted a blackberry bush
  • Labeled each plant in the garden

Below is our newly updated site plan, identifying the placement of all plants.
