Today, I weeded and took some more black plastic out of the vegetable garden. There’s an area to the left of our compost demonstration area that has always been an eyesore. It’s always been a mix of mulch, reindeer hay, weeds, and rocks. Today, I tossed the mulch pile and took most of the weeds out of it that had accumulated from last year. I’m also trying to work the reindeer hay into our compost now to get rid of it slowly. I’m hoping to have this area clear and useable in a couple of weeks
In addition to weeding, I hung all of our hand tools for students on the inside door of our new gardening shed. I still need to come up with a system to keep the doors open because they like to close when a gust of wind comes.
Today, the plants were moved to an area of the education building deck that is exposed to direct sunlight for a greater part of the day. I’m hoping to keep them there over the weekend in preparation for the transplant on Tuesday.
