Garden Helpers with Love

Resource table set up for gardening tips and information.

Today we managed to get two ground plots prepared for planting. One of the two plots is reserved for kale seedlings plus a cauliflower seedling …I think ? It’s funny, but I can’t remember what it is but it looks like cauliflower. ..can’t wait to be surprised. The other plot is reserved for sweet grass and edible flowers.

Many families that showed up today with so many little children, especially an adorable daycare which were so glad to see the garden in action. The children helped me transplant the seedlings and the caregiver said, “Wednesday is a great day for the garden and kids! “ Well, when they come back next Wednesday I will be there!

The plans are to plant sunflower seeds, zucchini, cucumber and carrots with the children. More work to do and prepare! Next week I will be giving away seeds🌱 and maybe some tea from the garden. See you then!

Transplanting a kale plant that went to seed into another plot. Those flowers are great for bees!
Weeded, turned the soil, added sea soil and now it’s ready for planting.
Children inquiring about the sweet grass, it’s many uses to smudge with and weave baskets

More seedlings to grow and transplant! Stay tuned!
