Community Garden Update

Yesterday it was time to do some more sowing in the community garden bed. Spinach, Rainbow Chard and Kale seeds were all added to the garden. A couple weeks ago Rocket (Arugula), Tsoi Sim (an Asian green), Chives, and Little Gem Lettuce seeds were planted.  The rocket and tsoi sim are showing cute little pairs of leaves already. Pretty soon we'll have food!

Our janky pea trellis
Yesterday during our work session in the garden we decided it was time to put up a trellis for the peas. This trellis will win no beauty pageants, but hopefully it will provide something for our Sugar Snap peas to climb up. They are growing taller day by day and in about a week they should reach the base of the trellis. We also planted out another two rows of peas that had been started in the greenhouse- they're looking very nice. I still can't wait to get my hands on some of those pea shoots!
