Rockwood Revitalization Plans Demonstration Kitchen Garden

Jun 30, 2013

We've had plenty of time to plan our garden due to the long periods of heavy rain.  Suprisingly, our last officially recorded frost for the year was May 25.  At first we wondered if we would even get the garden done in time to harvest before the first frost of Fall.  This is our first year to garden, so we had to break sod. It is a pleasure to finally have our 60ft x 4ft garden plowed and raked free of grass roots.  So we are now underway with planting.  Since beginning the project, many inquiries have been made and individuals in the community are excited about growing some tomatoes, squash, and other vegetables.  We promise to post a blog update with a picture as soon as we have some real growth. And, yes, we are glad to still be getting plenty of rain. So, we will post some pictures and more details of our progress soon.  We are still "under construction" and thank Kitchen Gardeners International for supporting our community with a Sow it Forward grant to make it possible.
