Unfortunately, we have had a very rainy week here in Tuscaloosa, causing students to spend less time in the garden since wet soil has a higher potential for compaction. However, students continued to do minimal weeding and saw problems that they will start trying to solve once the soil is drier, such as the fire ants that have made their homes in the garden beds.
Students have recently discovered fire ants in the beds. They will have to order an organic spray to rid the garden of the ants.
Students continue to monitor the tomatoes.
Babies Everywhere! Students are excited to see little plants sprouting up after planting two weeks ago.
