It’s a New Garden Season!

Hello, gardeners!

Whew! It’s the end of the semester, finals are done, and there are finally a few minutes to breathe! But work at the garden is already going. A few weeks ago, we had a clean-up event to get all of the plots ready for spring. We pulled up our winter cover, rye grass, and turned it into the soil, pulled weeds from the paths, and filled our entire green bucket with weeds to compost. Here are some pictures:

First, the chives, growing beautiful as ever!

Next, the oregano. You can see how big it got compared to my foot.

Here’s what the entire garden looked like before we started:

And here’s what it looked like while we were working:

A big thanks to everyone who came, despite the poor weather conditions.

And a reminder that there is an introduction event next Thursday, May 31, at 6pm. Everyone is welcome, and bring your friends! We’ll take a tour of the garden, plant some seedlings, pull some weeds, and pull up any carrots that are big enough. It will be a chance to enjoy some good company, good work, and (hopefully) good weather!

Happy gardening,

~Lauren V.
