Garden chores




Each day at 6:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m., students not taking care of the livestock descend upon the gardens to weed, plant, transplant, mulch, trellis, hill, harvest and nurture our food for this coming season. A new addition this season, strawberries, are being established between the other berries and the apple trees. Hopefully, the plants will thrive and we will be able to supply the kitchen with enough strawberry jam to furnish the needs of the Sterling community.

You speak the truth brother, the plants have established well and I am going to let them blossom and perhaps have a nice shortcake meal by the end of the summer.
