Winter Is Coming

BIG thank you to garden intern Kathryn Robling who not only organized and cleaned the shed, but completed a full inventory as well! Having a systemized shed is a crucial factor for every gardener. Where we would be if we didn’t know where our shovels were? Or how many wheelbarrows we have in order to haul smelly compost? This is especially important at Elon University, where there are many students who go into the shed to use gardening tools almost every day.

Other students helped out this weekend by painting the new benches that intern Dustin Pfaehler built. Now the benches are colorful and interesting to look out. Thanks to everyone who contributed despite the risk of getting covered in paint!

Neat designs!

Now students have a place to relax by the garden pond.

A cold front will be occurring for the rest of the week. Say goodbye to the remaining tomatoes and okra, we’ll see them next year! Check out next post to see how the crops survive their first real winter frost.
