Lots got done.

On Tuesday, volunteers from Temple Isaiah and Hancock showed up after the rain. Besides doing lots of weeding, we transplanted bok choy and lettuce, best to do after rain, which was Tuesday! We also “hilled” the potatoes. While the potatoes grow in the soil, the plants keeping pushing upward so regularly they need to be reburied. By the time the potatoes are ready to be dug up, they look like they have been planted in hills, since so much soil has been moved over to keep covering up the base of the plants.
