✿First Day in the Kent Community Garden ✿

Unfortunately I do not have any pictures available, but yesterday was our first day in the Kent Community Garden.  I did put together a quick Photoshop image of what I completed yesterday in the garden.

My plot was marked and tilled, had a few weeds growing, but other than that looks okay. I put out some of my seedlings so that they can get better sunlight. While my two little boys played in the dirt ( which they enjoyed greatly), I tilled the boarders of the plot.

I planted bunching onions (scallions) along the south west boarder of the garden. I prefer using onions as my garden borders because they function as a natural pest control. Their pungent odor detracts certain unwanted critters. Gardeners advise planting carrots next to onions.Onions protect broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes, strawberries, and potatoes. One of my little seed boxes contain Brussels sprouts. Like cabbage, Brussels sprouts in the genus Brassica and benefit from being planted near onions.

I am still working out my garden plan for this site. Stay tuned!
