A Summer of New Gardeners

“I started seeds in late March and then purchased starts from Pelion Garden and Clinton/Bailey. We planted in five used Rubbermaid totes (eighteen gallons and larger), and we planted potatoes in tires.” With great effort, Hedberg resuscitated two old four-by-eight-foot raised beds, amending the soil with compost and peat, and then built a three-bay compost bin. She also rescued an old buffet from the curb, removed the top, painted it red, and planted it with perennials from Mischler’s sale. Crops: Corn, beans, tomatoes, zucchini, okra, peppers, garlic chives, fennel, and other herbs
