More Mulch

"A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in." --Greek proverb

We all hoped that this week we would be finally be able to start working with the students but it turns out that we have another week without them. At least the garden will be in very good shape for the kids. Today was another hot one but lucky for us there was a nice cool breeze that made the humid air more bearable.  It was a relief to see that the stubborn grass that I spent so much time digging up on Friday morning was finally all cleared out. We started off our shift by watering some of the beds and wildflowers and then we set up the sprinkler to do the rest. Forest got right to work weeding some of the plants along the sides and re mulching them.

We also mulched the entire trench where we will soon plant some sunflowers! It's amazing how fast the garden has grown in just the three days that I have been gone. So many of the plants we just planted last week have shot up.

The red current tomatoes that Erin and I made starters for last week have already sprouted! 

Our shift flies by and I feel like we never get as much done as we should be able to.

Until next time!
