Market Garden Week 3

 

4/18/17 Tuesday

Started out the day by harvesting a pound of chocolate mints. Considering they’re not very heavy, I had to go back on the North Field a few times.

Shoveling dirt on the mulch layer; I do enjoy getting my hands dirty!

 

After that’s done, I helped transported the white mulch layer from the tomato rows in the North Field to the Summer Garden. After laying them down, I had to shovel dirt about every few inches on the mulch layer.

Today I learned:

  • Weeds are just unwanted plants.

Began the day by heading out to the North Field to assist with harvesting carrots. These carrots were planted around November-December of last year.

We later washed, packaged and sorted the carrots using a really amazing packaging machine.

Today I learned:

  • Carrots were predominantly red. The orange carrots that we’re all accustomed to is a product of mutation.
