The second week of April, we planted a round of crops that can handle colder weather. Carrots, radishes, kohlrabi, turnips, spinach, and peas all went in the ground. We planted the carrots and radishes along side each other as many believe they grow well as a team.
On April 18th, a mighty group of volunteers helped us do a second round of cold weather crops, and also to prepare a bed for some highly anticipated blueberry bushes! The bed for the blueberries runs along the eastern edge of the garden as a border between the alley and our property. The blueberry bushes will serve as a living edible fence that will protect our beds from wind and hold in soil and other organic matter like leaves and straw on the property, halting erosion.
