E3 + Hillel work day

As Ellen explains in the post below, we both visited the garden today, helping build the beds and water plants. I’ll be writing about  the plants here:

1. There were pine needles and leaves covering all the beds, so we cleared them off.

2. The bed with all cabbages looked a little wilted, some were brown on the edges and bottom, with dead leaves hanging on that I picked off.

Pretty, but a lot of them are wilting and brown on the edges

3. Buckwheat and radishes are sprouting!

4. We added some extra soil to some. Even though it rained and they seemed watered enough at 11:30, by 3pm they were drier so we watered them a bit.

5. We planted another cabbage because it was sitting in a plastic pot thing without any drainage.

6. The pomello tree doesn’t look wilted anymore, at least to my eye, like a previous blogger posted. There are 2 yellow pomellos and a few green ones growing on the tree right now.

Pomellos!
