Spring is Here!


The plum tree and apple tree are finally blooming! It’s beautiful, too bad I don’t have a digital camera. Today I worked in the garden: weeded the garlic, planted some cabbage starts, and planted carrot, beet, rutabaga, and parsnips seeds. I harvested a bunch of kale, chard, mizuna, and collards and brought them to school to share. One of the coolest plants growing is a variegated collard–it’s got white stripes and the leaf’s back is pure white. Wow. It got me to thinking about how far this squat lot has come. It provides so much food for humans, animals, and habitat for wildlife. Here’s a photo of it when we first started, 4 years ago.
