Getting Started

On Friday evening, April 8, 2011Linda Wilson, Sarah Watson Annette Lewis and Joan Mobley got Gordon's Garden started by prepping two of our raised beds.  Since the city only furnished Top Soil, Gordon's Gardner's dragged  six 40 pound bags of mushroom compost and two 40 pound bag of peat moss from the car to our beds.  We dumped three bags of mushroom compost, 1/2 bag of peat moss and 1/2 bag of vegetable food into each bed to nourish the soil.

We planted all of our lettuce, Black Seeded Simpson Leaf Lettuce, Buttercrunch Lettuce, Heirloom Acres Spring Mix, Red Romaine Lettuce, Organic Winter Density Lettuce and Tat soi. 

Donald and Karen provided moral support.   Karen brought Gordon’s Garden signs for each of our beds and had water and fruit for all!! One down, five to go!!!
