Planting Day on Mother's Day a success!

We had a good work session Sunday morning, with Tracy, Noah, Kira, Keff, Sarah, Kelly, and Leslie and Tova (who was 10 years old but an experienced planter.  We planted beans, chard, kale and collard seedlings outside, but decided the cucumbers will have to wait for warmer weather.

We got the outdoor planting and watering done pretty fast, so we headed up to the greenhouse and repotted everything that needed it and enjoyed some very yummy bread from When Pigs Fly Bakery in a little bit warmer environment. 

We're actually in pretty good shape at the moment--we just need it to warm up a bit so we can put other plants in the ground.  I think it'll be two weeks, at least, until most other things can be transplanted.

Keff and Noah used their wheels to carry the  seedlings and water.  (It was sunny, but very cold and windy.)

Tracy and Sarah were super fast at transplanting the seedlings.

Here's Kira (my daughter), hard at work transplanting pole beans.

Tova worked hard at transplanting seedlings in the greenhouse.
