We also did a whole lot of dirt moving this week. We leveled a pile of rocks, compost, dirt and who knows what else. We found a snake AND a mouse in this process. I guess its good to know that wildlife enjoys the garden...We leveled out this area to create a space at the garden where members of the skidmore community can hang out with our community of snakes, birds, worms and plants. We planted blueberries and raspberries there today for people (and probably birds) to much on. And hopefully we'll have a picnic table in that spot soon! Exciting stuff, come check it out!
Here are pictures:
|The snake we found! Still haven't identified him but hes keeping the rodents out so we hope we stays.|
|A huge bed of zucchini (right side) and cucumber (left side). Can't wait to see them grow up!|
|From the wind chime to the edge of our growing space (marked w/ bricks) is for the sole purpose of hanging out :)|
