Garden Day

We started the morning working in the community garden with Virginia.  We fed the soil with homemade compost, mulched the beds with bamboo chips, and weeded the paths.  Our compost is primarily made of grass and wood chips, and then we add organic seabird guano, Calpril, older compost (as an inoculant), and lots of water as we layer up the pile. We then finished the morning potting some tomato and jungle peanut in the nursery.

The strong trade winds are back and helped usher in a little bit of rain and our new cook.  We’re all looking forward to the meals that Jade will create using ingredients from our garden.
