Garden Update

Along with two interns and one student, Heidi Wilson (garden manager) completed the transfer of all the tomatoes from the greenhouse to the growing beds. In addition, another 100 lbs of seed potatoes were planted bringing our total potato volume to about 300 lbs. The weather has remained cool although a change is on the horizon as rain and warm temperatures approaches from the southwest.

In the Circus Patch Garden, Pete and Rex (our draft horse team) completed a final disc harrow to knock down emerging weeds and prepare the seedbeds for dry beans. Heidi is happy with the progress of transplanting and direct seeding and reports that we are on-schedule.
