Starbucks & Camp Fletcher: Planting in April

Yesterday was a beautiful day at camp, and, after about a week of rainy days, we needed it. The sun finally came out, and temperatures stayed in the 70s all afternoon. It was a perfect day for our amazing Starbucks volunteers to come out to camp, and we had a great afternoon planting with them. A small group came, bringing with them tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and marigolds to plant in our raised beds close to the camp office. It was too muddy to plant in the Education Garden, but they had a great time working on the raised beds and in the tires. We’re so glad to have these amazing volunteers help with the planting and upkeep of our gardens, and we cannot wait until we’re able to harvest some amazing produce from these plants!

As soon as it dries out, we’ll be able to plant the tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and peppers we got from the University of Montevallo Organic Plant Sale last week in the Education Garden. Our garden is all tilled and ready to go, and Wednesday is looking like a great day to get to work!
