I was able to get a good look at what the garden will be like once the raised beds are in. All of the beds were measured and marked, then outlined with twine
Some of my first seeding projects took place as well. I soaked my fava seeds before I seeded them, to increase the rate of germination.
I discovered that my old toques from culinary school make the perfect lining for my seeding trays! They are lightweight and breathable, and will let moisture pass through without falling apart. An education from the Culinary Institute of America, the gift that keeps on giving 😉
I was also able to get my chalkboard wall with my 2013 garden calendar up! Next step is to find someone who can bedazzle the wall with cool chalk art…currently accepting submissions from muralists :p
