The Plan

Planting Stuff

I think we are into our fifth week in this class and it has grown. (See previous post about compost), this week we designed our 'fantasy' garden for Vines Road, and came up with some interesting ideas. Then we went out into the garden and planted Passionfruit Grape, aquired from Gail Thomas, and Globe Artichokes, generally tidied up the garden watered and weeded. The Garden is growing.
