On Wednesday we prepped the nightshade bed and got our lovely tomato plants in the ground. Sayuri, John, and I had a great time in the sun!

The garden is bursting with wonderful flowers, figs, fennel, ferns…. the bees have been buzzing around us as we weed and find new treasures.

This Wednesday, we will be in the garden from 1-4, transplanting tomatoes, basil, maybe some peas, eggplant… whatever is ready! Come down and join us, there is always room for another helping hand.

Today we had a great time out in the sun, weeding and digging out blackberry vines, chatting about bioremediation, and learning about the plants in our garden.

We found a bunch of self-seeding carrots among the comfrey and buttercup, so we pulled and mulched hard around them to help them grow. We also found a bunch of self-seeding lettuces in the mushroom bed, and pulled them out for salads, and threw down some myceliated woodchips. It’s amazing what can grow on our little patch of land, and what kind of plants want to be around us. We sure have a lot of Lemon Balm, Chocolate Mint, Spearment, and… well… unknowns!! The bees were happy to be with us too, making their way around the purple comfrey flowers.

Our fig tree is even starting to grow little fruits- which we are all so excited to harvest when the time comes!

Phew it was a hot and sunny one today! We transplanted our carrots, beets, and parsnips to the outside gardens. Inside, we moved our bigger plant friends into bigger homes- some were coming right out of their pots! Everyone got some water, thanks to John’s amazing duct taping skills, and an old hose.
