long long long work

Sorry nothing was posted yesterday. Hi this is jeanette again. I'm an intern at hester streets collaborative just to remind you. Yesterday we went to the garden near ps 134. I worked until 6 something at the garden. It was tiring but fun. At first we were weeding the plants so that we can plant some potted plants and vegetables into the planters. We finally decided to transport the tomatoes and the corn plants to a planter but we didn't know how so Alex had a friend come in and teach us. We dug a ditch big enough for the plant to fit and then we put fertilizer into the ditch, the fertilizer is water that had worms living in, then we put dirt over it so the plant doesn't touch the fertilizer directly. When plants are transported, they are sensitive so its best to keep them from the fertilizer for now. Then we covered the roots with dirt and learned to make mounts so when we water the plants, the water doesn't go anywhere else but the plant. We also harvested lettuce because we noticed that some lettuce looked fried from the last dirt day. We were planning to harvest the peas but we some how forgot. The peaches look good enough to eat, but we can't pick it yet because they aren't ripe. I ate one though.
