We dig gardens

Hey all!

Great meeting earlier! If you weren't at the meeting tonight, pick an item from the list below and learn about it! Wednesday we will share our research and draw up a plan for the spring. Hopefully after wednesday night we will be able to purchase seeds and start growing "starts" in the greenhouse. When researching, keep in mind the following:

Sun needs (does it grow well/poorly in shady spots?)
timeline for New York State/NYC (planting, germination, harvesting etc.)
Soil Ph (acidity & any special needs)
Spacing of plants (and any ingenious ways to maximize space)
Companion planting (does it work well with any particular plants)

Here is the list of who is responsible for researching what (sorry if I misspell your names)

Flowers: danielle & ariana
Cucumbers: abi
Lettuce: danielle
tomatoes: christina
rhubarb: danielle
berries: erin
fennel: beckie
broccoli: greg & tabitha
spinach: jackson
radish: jackson
beets: jackson
mushrooms: erin, tabitha
berbs: jess
onions & potatoes:
beans: jackson, greg
eggplant: christina
peppers: jess
Compost & soil: jiwad
Double-digging & raised beds: alicia
Zucchini: erin
carrots: ariana

Yay! See you all wednesday hopefully at 10 in hamilton (we shouldn't have a problem, but if we cannot change the room it will be at 9). E-mail me if you have staunch opposition to meeting that late (10) but we changed the time to accomodate the metrotones ladies ;)

Peace & good food,
