We had a very successful first workday in the garden. We had a large group that was able to work hard and efficiently. The garden had a lot of weeds so we spent the bulk of the day weeding around the bases of the plants to give them some breathing room. We also harvested a large amount of gourds and pumpkins. We have many peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, zucchinis, and corn that a looking beautiful and ready to eat. We should be having a larger harvest soon for the dining halls. We also set up the drip hose to water the plants, which are looking a little low on water.
