And we’ve decided group gardening is truly the way to garden! We gathered at the garden today to get our first seeds in our “lasagna beds”…and accomplished so much more. We planted 4 beds with heirloom peas, spinach, lettuce, garlic, onions, and kale. We layered a new bed and planted some herbs, and then outside the fence we planted 5 beautiful blueberry bushes. The layered beds—an experiment for all of us—are composting beautifully and are filled with red worms. One of our new members is contributing her farming expertise and heirloom seeds, while other members are stepping forward with carpentry skills, manual labor abilities, and knowledge of composting and seed saving.
