Garden at the URI Watson House

Hurray!!! We finally got a garden at URI! We all rounded up at the Watson House behind the library to get the garden started during exam week which was a great break from the studying. About 10 of us were there to turn the soil, add manure and plant seeds while cracking jokes and enjoying each others company. We planted tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, zucchini, winter squash from seed. While the started cantaloupe, carrots, radishes and heirloom speckled lettuce from the green house were planted right into the ground. A few weeks after planting, Cate and I went back to work on the garden and a few radishes were already ready for picking! Cate was so excited she ripped it out of the ground and sunk her teeth into it(see picture below). I took a few home and put them in a fresh salad. Can’t wait for more veggies to come! Check back later for more updates! -Maria
