We had a great group out on 6/13. Here they are with a couple of LACBG staff in the teaching garden completing a portion of their service project with us. Here they are weeding out the area that our tomatoes will be transplanted. They weeded the vegetable garden, herb garden, kentucky native garden, and turned all three compost piles. The amount of work they did saved us WEEKS and we are very grateful for their service.
During the great weeding, we also found about a dozen volunteer tomato plants already in the tomato area!

I’d like to introduce you to… our new gardening shed

Please join me in welcoming our newest addition to our teaching garden. Our tool and storage shed has completed its trek across Woodford County from Jerry’s shop. It is settling in nicely near our vegetable gardens. I’ve started transferring the couple of tools, pots, as well as any other gardening odds and ends. This means that our Home Depot shopping trip is back on the horizon.

To celebrate its arrival, I decided to weed the herb garden. It’s a process but our group work day really made a dent in the amount of weeds that were leftover from last season.

The peas are struggling and have had a rough go at it so far. We’ve lost some but the hardy ones are continuing to persevere. I’ve heard stories that other Kentucky peas are not having a great season yet either. So that makes me feel a little better!
