It’s always nice when parents come to the gardens and bring the kids and we get to explain about vegetables, weeds, insects and how everything works together for a reason. Little Lucian and his mom Noelle came out yesterday to help weed bull thistle and do some weed suppression with jute coffee bags. The coffee bags work so well in keeping the thistle and other weeds at bay and over time break down as organic material and add to the soil. It was really heart warming to see little Lucian drag the bags and lay them out, what a good lil helper, and of course there was the hiding of shoes and covering up with bags and just some good ol garden fun. now is a good time to let the kids plant seeds and starts so they can watch them grow and fruit!
We have been so busy trying to get the Albina site ready for this new spring season, this will be our first season on this property and hope it will be a good one? We already have onions, blueberries, fava beans, and strawberries planted and have the herbs in the cold frame, so they will be ready soon. We will have a video coming out this summer on grafting tomatoes, we will be doing this video with Lettuce Grow Garden Foundation, so stay tuned for that! Here is some new pics of the Albina site, enjoy and remember to let us know if we can help with planting and soil advice!
Today we went to the Hicks garden site and planted 300 assorted onions and a berm of 25 strawberries, we still have so much more to plant at this one of a kind garden site donated by Sue Hicks. We hope to get a couple of the plots planted this season with good food that will be shared by so many! We are also looking into growing a crop that we could sell or could be had fore a minimum donation to help us with costs. We will keep you all updated on what crops we will have in abundance and welcome any suggestions?
Cheers and God Bless
