Wow, did we work hard today!
And we got so much done. First, Mazyar worked on the hillside, where I will soon be planting all the zucchini, squash, watermelon, cantaloupe and cucumbers. He mixed in gypsum (to improve the texture of the soil) and compost. Then we planted all the above vegetables in small containers to be placed on the heating mat, to be transplanted later. Nisha and Flora turned the large compost pile in my yard and then they, along with Juna, planted mache, salad bowl lettuce, royal oak leaf lettuce, beets, chard, turnips and carrots.
