First veggies planted!

first-veggies-holding-trays Molly Petersons brought the starts she’s been growing for the garden – 12 flats of lettuce, kale, chard, spinach, oriental vegetables, peas, leeks, onions and parsley!

It was pouring rain! Molly showed us her nifty start spacer, and we set out the rows, and started planting!Β  The first veggies are in the ground!

Many thanks to Molly Petersons for growing the beautiful vegetable starts and showing us how to space and plant them, and to Damien Cortez, Judy Furukawa, Dan Kostek, Mike Negrete, Carrie Olofson, Melissa Russell and Serafina Strickland for the planting!
