Sunny Thursday

Today was a nice day for the garden. The sun is back out and the wind has quieted down some. We had a class in the morning that worked on identifying common vegetables with what part of the plant we actually eat. After this activity they watered watered watered. Thursday was a day for watering. The plants got a good dose in the morning and in the afternoon. Some of them are looking really nice. In two weeks we should hopefully have some yummy vegetables to harvest. When you dig under the soil the carrots and white potatoes are looking promising. It is a fun surprise for the kids to see whats underneath. In the afternoon another class came out and did some more watering. The overload of radishes were also thinned more. The sun is actually starting to get a bit harsh for some of the plants (sugar peas and herbs). We're all excited for the next two weeks, everything seems to be coming together well!

  1. Can you consider a shadecloth tipi over the peas?
