Jesse Gates Edible Forest October Work Day

On this sunny day, it was only Loy and me at the Jesse Gates Edible Forest at Wells Church. Lots of lettuce, herbs, and greens are growing! I brought home a huge bunch of lettuce for salads and two peppers.


The cabbages were beginning to head.

This lettuce started from seed. It is showing out!


This is a purple top turnip. See the tiny bit of purple.

Mesclun Mix. In a shadier spot, not growing as quickly.


We put down newspapers, wet them, and put pine straw and leaf matter on top.
