Quick Update

The Demo garden crew didn’t work today. For one, it is still pretty soggy out there. Today was also the E.A.R.T.H. Workshop, so we were all pretty busy with that. (The E.A.R.T.H. Workshop is an environmental education program for middle schoolers.)

Anyway, I did get out into the garden for a little while, and found these beautiful radishes!

Easter Egg RadishesThey are just getting to the right size to harvest and eat! (Have you ever noticed how the first things to reach harvestable stages get picked sooner than is maybe ideal? It’s hard to resist that first harvest!) These are some of the Easter Egg Radishes.

The tomatoes and peppers are enjoying the light breeze and cooler temperatures outside today. I won’t leave them out overnight, but a few hours this afternoon should help them adjust to the windy outdoors.
