Raised bed gardening

One of the first gardening activities I did back 'at work' today was helping plant and get ready to plant two raised beds at the Clemson Child Development Center. One is for the 2 and 3-yr olds; the other is for the 4 and 5-yr olds.

This is a grant-funded activity, but supported by volunteers.  I'm there in my 'official' capacity, but am donating all the plants and seeds personally.

It was such fun to get the potting mix ready, mixed with sustained release organic fertilizer and mushroom compost.  Then we helped the kids dig small holes, as I showed them how to plant the collards, broccoli, and lettuce transplants, and sow radishes and carrots.

A great afternoon.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
