Goodbye for the School Year (Hello Summer Gardening)!

19 May

We had our final workparty of the yearopen house on May 7th.  We planted a bunch of new crops with the help of Vanessa Jerolmack, a gardener from the BioPond and Biology Department Greenhouse.  New additions to the garden include eggplants tomatoes, peppers, and some bright orange and yellow flowers to brighten up the edges.  They look great!  We also re-mulched the ground and put last minute touches on the irrigation system, which in the beginning kept leaking.

After we were done for the day, we brought Capogiro to the garden and ate gelato to celebrate all the hard work we had put into the Garden over the year. The gelato was delicious!   The school year may be over, but we still have plenty of work ahead of us over the Summer, including caring for and harvesting the crops.  If you’re in Philadelphia for the Summer, we hope to see you there!
