Spring is coming, spring is coming!

Hello world! Don’t let the lack of posts fool you – we are as busy as ever!

Miss Elissa, shovel in hand on a cooler work day out at the Schuylkill Center Community Garden plot where
we will be growing this year. We already cleared out a lot. Look at all that space!

Glass jug left behind by the plot’s previous tenant against a cloudy sky.

My dear friend Joel provided us with a cozy spot in his greenhouse to start our seeds in order to get a jump
start. Look how cute it is!

Your humble narrator putting seed starting mix into trays.

This year we are trying Polygonum tinctorium, Dyer’s Knotweed or Japanese Indigo.

Indigofera tinctoria

As well as our old friend Indigofera tinctoria!

Watering

Giving our babies a good drink.

And a heated mat!

Potting Shed

Wish us luck and stay tuned!!
