Plotters and potting

Our young gardeners have been plotting some new ideas for growing the seeds so kindly sent by so many of you.
They have started new trial project in their garden known as "pot farming".
This is a special farming method which include  planting in pots filled with fine textured and well treated soil. 
Our soil type at Happy House is not that good as it if full of stones which makes it hard for root crops, like beets and carrots, to grow.
In addition, it will be easy for them to take good care of them in terms of watering, pest and disease control as well as weed control. 
Our young gardeners started by digging and sieving tthe soil before filling their pots,With directions from our gardener, Uncle Chris they managed to fill ten pots.
They planted beetroot  carrots, leek, parsley, celery, lettuce, hot pepper, tomato and sweet  Pepper .
Any excess seedling will be transplanted to a new pot or 
taken to the green houses.
Thanking all friends who for the seeds which is encouraging such enterprise in our keen young growers as they help to grow crops to feed our family
