Ready for spring!

soil blocks making_4192  starts lettuce late february_4234

We’re in full gear growing starts with soil blocks using our own potting soil mix. Interested in learning this technique? Check out the Growing Groceries classes, and you can learn how to make them every Wednesday at the Good Cheer Garden work party. Not only will we plant these starts out in the garden, but they’ll be distributed to Food Bank clients to help them get their gardens growing.

The stairs to our garden shed “Woody” needed improvement, and they sure are sturdy now!

The hoophouse got a nice pressure-washing, and we turned over half the Bayview School Garden (the students have relocated to the South Whidbey Academy!)

field prep spraying_4205  mulching late february_4214

All the cover crops are now turned over and mulched, and composting into rich organic matter. To help with the decomposition process we sprayed biodynamic Pfeiffer Field and Garden Spray on the beds to inoculate them with beneficial soil microorganisms.

The garden is ready for spring! Can hardly wait to turn the brown into green!
