Goals for Saturday’s Workday!

Planting seeds (if we can get into the truitt center):

  • Sprinkle 1/3 of the blue cup of fish meal over the row we started. Fish meal is in a tan bag in the plastic bin in the shed
  • Shovel as much compost as you can get out of the black composter onto the row
  • Re-cultivate briefly to mix in the fish meal and compost with the soil.
  • Sprinkle seeds lightly (kale, and spinach if you run out of kale) over the row, seeds should be 1-2 inches apart
  • Massage them into the ground so they are covered

Planting plants

  • Broccoli goes in the row closest to powell house (next to the amaranth)
  • Dig small holes and place 1 plant in each hole, bury the stem as much as possible so the first leaf is about 1/2 inch above ground
  • Cabbage and collards can go in the other two rows, in whichever order we decide

Rabbit prevention

  • Use the green wire fencing near the shed and behind the big gray fan thing to construct some sort of barrier (like a triangle over the top of the row) use the wooden stakes and the hammer if necessary
  • This is to rabbit-proof the row
  • ***If we can’t find a way to do this, or if we need more supplies, we hold off on planting the plants until tuesday so we can find more supplies**


  • Water everything you plant, as soon as you plant it and before you leave for the day


  • Clear out any dead plants or parts of plants anywhere in the main part of the garden
  • Start trying to get rid of the grass in the walkways, especially in the herb garden
  • Feel free to harvest whatever you would like to take home
