Out with the Bolting in with the Seeds

As I mentioned last week we have had some bolting greens in the community garden over the last few weeks due to record heat and no rain. Our collards were the first to go followed shortly after by the spinach. Those spring greens just couldn’t take the heat. Luckily for us temperatures have now settled [...]

Growing My Way? Sprouts and King Cakes

Day 22 and our company garden is doing great after we transplanted the seedlings into bigger homes last week. We did lose a few plants but that was due to heat more than transplanting; someone who shall remain nameless (me) left the grow light on over the weekend and a few plants dried out. A [...]
