HUNGER is no laughing matter..... see our work as it progresses. We have planted lots of great foods; Lettuce, Bok choy, Beets, Peas, Tomatoes, Rhubarb, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Peppers, Carrots, Watermellon, Green beans, and Onions. The Herbs; Oregano, Basil, Mint, Rosemary, & Chamomile.
Hopelink in Redmond has generously offered their 20x23square foot garden for us to TWEEK! So, tweek we did. Sprouted seeds are coming up and we transfered them into the spaces available in the raised beds. Wednesday the 16th, I spent 2 hours digging up 15 small plants and raking rocks, so many rocks.
Already my back is sore....but, I wondered why people were looking at me kinda weird. I pressed on.
Thursday June 17th... the 1st official WORK DAY at the garden. 2 volunteers were there to help, and more came out to see what we had planned. A few picked up tools to help. With a lot of SWEAT-EQUITY, we gave this garden a shot of STEROIDS!....The Redmond Rousers and friends made 6 raised beds 4ft x 8 ft in size, augmenting and rototilling the soil. All this happened from 9am-noon. My hope is that with the changes we make, we will be able to give the little garden much needed boost to grow lots of great foods and some beautiful flowers for the residents of Hopelink, in Redmond.
WATCH US GROW!!!!!
