This is our second Kitchen Garden update.
This past Saturday, from about 10 am to 1 pm, a few us got together to continue with the general clean up of the garden. Mark Pennington helped create a new bed using the recycled labyrinth borders given to us by Linda Herring. We were also able to border off our herb garden area using these borders. John Gunther-Mohr worked at turning over the soil in our raised beds plus he brought over compost that was added to our new bed. We also did a good amount of weeding, raking, plus we watered our seedling trays.
I'm happy to report that we have some asparagus and garlic ready to be harvested as it has been growing all winter and should be ready now.
Next Steps at the Garden- We will need to continue with the weeding, composting, and the watering of our seedling trays. We also need to organize a watering and composting schedule. Once the vegetables are planted they will need to be watered at least 3 times a week plus we need to bring out the compost in the Church Kitchen out to the garden about 3 times a week.
Please consider coming out to the garden this coming Saturday, May 10, between 10 am and 12 noon. We'll need some help with all the mentioned task plus you can help us plan out our garden as to what are some of the preferred vegetables and where in the garden we can grow them. As I mentioned in the past a percentage of the harvest will go to gardeners and the rest will go to the food pantry.
Let me know if you can stop by the garden this weekend.
