Tilling the Soil / First Outdoor Seeding and Transplant Day!!!

Spring is upon us.  It’s finally time to work the soil and start moving our hardier crops outdoors.  Last weekend I had some friends and family over to help get the ball rolling here at Sandbox.  We used a technique called double digging to incorporate amendments into the soil and prepare nice fluffy beds for the plants.

We even had time to transplant onions, scallions, parsley, kale, collards, cabbage, and direct seed our potatoes and parsnip!

It was a great start to the season, and there’s LOTS more to come.  If you’re interested in joining in on any of the fun, please sign up for the mailing list (at the top right of this page, or go to the “Get Involved” page) for information on volunteer days.
