Saturday could not have been a better day to garden! With such warm and sunny weather we were able to get a lot accomplished. All of our tasks included:
-We planted five fruit trees! Some were plums, some were persimmons, and one was a pawpaw! This unique tree is native to the American east coast, and tastes like a cross of mango and custard.
-Tulips were planted along the fence facing the road. These will bloom in the spring with bursts of colorful blooms!
-We planted bright yellow pansies along the fence facing the track. These will continue to bloom until the first frost, brightening our garden with their color!
-We almost finished our compost system! Soon we will start composting certain materials to put in our raised beds.
-We had some strong hands manage to pull out a giant bush that needed to go!
Thanks to the many volunteers who came! We greatly appreciated the many hands that helped. These hands included:
-Black Student Union
-Whiting School of Engineering
-Graduate Environmental Network
-Space Telescope Science Institute
Pictures from this day will be posted tomorrow!
