TAFE & SAGE — Second semester

Our plantings have survived the break and the rabbits. We even had a little rain to help things along.
Today the main tasks are

  • moving some of the first batch of compost to the site for mulch
  • planting out the tomatoes- many local growers have found that with the recent cold snap, their summer crops have become dormant and are waiting for the soil to warm again
  • Planting out the raspberries that were struck from cuttings

TAFE students load the compost they've made into a ute for transport to the SAGE site
