Yesterday we finally planted a bunch of seeds in the Garden at the Wingnut.

FOOD NOT LAWNS!!!

We built 8 4′ x 4′ boxes to make raised beds in the front yard. Then we planted everything – carrots, kale, collards, turnip greens, squash, zuchinni, tomatoes, cucumber, basil, lemon balm, cotton!!!, spinach etc.

Kayla Dean, Eric, Jeremy, and Mo planted the seeds. While we were out there, 2 kids from the neighborhood stopped by and wanted to help. So Larry and Dayshawn helped plant lemon balm, sunflower seeds, and tomatoes. Larry wanted some seeds to take home, so we set him up with a egg carton of dirt and some tomato seeds to plant.

We still have potatoes and corn to plant.

We also are growing a ton of herbs and peppers- jalopenos, mint, etc.

If you need to get your garden on, come by and help out!

Johnny Ray and I just got 4 black berry bushes, a raspberry bush, 2 grape plants, and some aloe vera plants. It is so nice and sunny today we are gonna plant some future food!

We also got enough cement and mortar to finish the fire pit in the backyard.

And enough jars to finish canning the apple butter Jeremy made!

Productivity at the Wingnut- longterm plans getting started! And Spaghetti Dinner Tonight!
