Gardening 101

Today our Master Gardener, Kimberly Bown, invited us to the garden behind the convent to help our green thumbs get a bit greener. She gave us the lowdown on preparing a garden bed, the science behind nutritious soil, and some detailed information on the simple machines we call gardening tools.

We then turned the soil and planted leeks and zucchini. Be sure to stop by this summer to monitor the growth of these plants, and if there’s a ripe zucchini or two, harvest it and prepare it for dinner! Thanks again to Mrs. Bown for sharing her knowledge with us.20130604-073311.jpg20130604-073409.jpg20130604-073421.jpg20130604-073442.jpg20130604-073451.jpg
