Voice of the Garden

by Will Lewis

We have been very busy in the garden the last couple of weeks, trying to catch up from the bad weather and all. Mostly what we have been doing is getting the beds ready for planting, planting, weeding, mulching, manuring, tilling, and a little bit of harvesting.

In the educational garden we have planted lettuce, bitter melon, bodhi beans, tomatoes, peppers, spinach, basil, coriander, parsley, radishes, sunflowers, and lots of kale.

We have harvested radishes and lettuce. In the garden of seven gates we have planted chard, beets, lettuce, bush beans, oats, 100 asparagus plants, and around 160 tomato plants.

We recieved 40 flats of vegetables two days ago from West Virginia State University. These consisted of tomatoes, peppers, basil, coriander, chives, okra, squash, tomatilla, and melons.

So far it is looking good. We feel that we will have a great harvest this year. We still have a lot more to plant though to get everything in the earth. Please come and visit and see what all is going on.
