Did you know UGArden has a full-fledged medicinal plants garden? We do and it’s packed with healthy herbs for what ails ya! Everything from burdock to holy basil, we have it all!
Coming very soon to a UGArden near you!
We did some serious BCS work today at the gardens! Homeschoolers now have a fully-prepped plot!
A BCS is an Italian-made “mini-tractor.” You can attach multiple implements onto this bad boy to accomplish nearly any task! The piece we have attached in these pictures is the tiller, which we used to mix up our soil amendments.

Sweet Potatoes are a member of the Ipomoea genus, as opposed to Potatoes, which are members of the Solanum genus. The Origin of the sweet potato is thought to be in either Central or South america.
Why do sweet potatoes make good detectives….
Because they keep their eyes peeled!
A kinda spooky, absolutely beautiful way to start the week Monday morning at UGArden!
