In April, after the other garden beds were planted, the Garden Club planted a new garden which replaced a mostly-dead lawn on the slope at the west end of the school building. Gardening here is an experiment because the garden only has direct sun between mid-morning and mid-afternoon. Twelve students prepared the soil and planted 21 patty-pan squash seedlings, as well as seeds for cucumber, pumpkin and watermelon. Then Mr. Sandy installed a drip irrigation system for watering the plants.This picture shows the slope garden immediately after it was planted.
