Yesterday we finally planted a bunch of seeds in the Garden at the Wingnut.
FOOD NOT LAWNS!!!
We built 8 4′ x 4′ boxes to make raised beds in the front yard. Then we planted everything – carrots, kale, collards, turnip greens, squash, zuchinni, tomatoes, cucumber, basil, lemon balm, cotton!!!, spinach etc.
Kayla Dean, Eric, Jeremy, and Mo planted the seeds. While we were out there, 2 kids from the neighborhood stopped by and wanted to help. So Larry and Dayshawn helped plant lemon balm, sunflower seeds, and tomatoes. Larry wanted some seeds to take home, so we set him up with a egg carton of dirt and some tomato seeds to plant.
We still have potatoes and corn to plant.
We also are growing a ton of herbs and peppers- jalopenos, mint, etc.
If you need to get your garden on, come by and help out!
