Victory Garden 2012 Log - May 7th

MG Iris Masters on Seeds
Our class on May 7th centered on choosing vegetables to plant from seed, and a discussion from Master Gardener Iris Masters about the information contained on a packet of seeds.  Here's a good fact sheet on the subject.  One piece of information, for example, usually included on seed packets, is the plant's life cycle, whether it is an annual, biennial, or perennial.

Cultivating the Onions

 During garden time, we cultivated the onions.

Learning How to Plant Beans
 We were instructed on the depth and spacing of planting the beans in the tilled garden and the no-till garden.

Planting a Double Row of Bush Beans

Then planted them.
Raised Bed Sprouts
The seeds in the raised beds have germinated and are looking good.
