Today, we were joined by Troop 100 and their parents. The boys raked over the soil in our two new raised beds, dug holes and watered in a couple of hundred worms, made beautiful straight furrows and planted a variety of lettuce and broccoli seeds in the demonstration garden.
We tended to the compost pile, and I was very impressed by their knowledge concerning why we should compost and why worms are good for the soil. Troop 100 were very good workers and they did a fantastic job.
They are going to return to the garden in a couple of months to make a salad and eat it in the garden!!
