Dig It – April 12, 2017

Hello everyone! This is Carmelo and Giuseppe. This is our third entry for the blog. Today 20170401_120902is a very special day, indeed. Today, a good amount of our seedlings have sprouted. We are trying to keep the ones which have sprouted alive. As for the ones that have not germinated, we are keeping an eye on them. Today, we will be tending to the seedlings by watering and covering them. We will also be planting some new lettuce. We will direct sow pea seeds, kale seeds, chickpea seeds and fava beans directly into the garden. We do these first because they can tolerate the colder weather. In a few weeks time, we will actually be transferring the healthy seeds to a garden in a green house. This way, they have lots of space to grow and germinate.
