Stevenson ES – Summer Seeding

Hello Garden Friends!

IMG_1486Whoo hoo! The seedlings planted during the Next Step Ministries work party are really taking off. Today I added a few more seeds so that the garden will look lush when the students come back. I sowed cucumbers, beets, chard, and zucchini. In addition, I made some decorative signs, checked our irrigation timer, and took a nice video so you can go on a little tour!

Until next update!
