Settling In

Hello Everyone!

I’m Dorothy, the new VISTA working with Lotts Creek’s garden initiative. I have gone out to meet a few of our community gardeners and took pictures of some gardens to share. We just acquired 8 Mr. Stripey heirloom tomato plants for our school garden along with some straw and cage wire for potato barrels. We are also beginning to experiment with jicama. I have soaked the seeds overnight and planted them in small containers for now.

      They were ideas of one of our community gardeners. I believe he just used what’s old and laying around. I know the sweet potatoes are going to be transplanted to his garden. I didn’t ask many specifics. I can next time I meet with him.
