Garden Post: Monday, February 4th

The garden is looking good! It’s amazing the progress we have made over the quarter, with the collective help of our class and the amazing input from e3. The new beds look great, especially with the addition of the L-shaped bed and its stained bench. The bench gives the area to become more of a reflective space, rather than a purely agricultural zone. I would definitely recommend that we look into constructing more permanent benches around the perimeter of the garden, thus making it a more outsider-friendly area.

The vegetables in the beds are also looking great. I, however focused on the potted plants around the perimeter of the garden. A lot of them were in dire need of some pruning and cleaning out! I went to town on a potted mint plan.

Mystery plant (?) before I tackled it!

I think it would be a great idea to plant some flowering plants along the outside of the garden (like we did with the blueberry bushes). This way we will be able to attract bees to pollinate our plants!!!!! Some good flowering plants to look into would be: rosemary, lavender, sweet peas, and marigolds.
