Highlight of my week was driving the tractor!
Today we moved a military CONEX (Con=container, Ex=Express) from the parking lot to the main barn! We pulled it with a tractor and rolled it using the PVC pipe and “rear pipe to the front repeat” method. It will be used to store future harvested herbs.
checking the firmness of the cabbage (with consent of course).
This week, we were able to harvest carrots, kale, cabbage, broccoli, and collards! It was awesome to get to build teamwork, and harvesting carrots was so satisfying.
Last Friday we moved this cooler from the parking lot up closer to the barn! We lifted it with a jack, put PVC pipes under it, then pulled it with the tractor. It will be used for processing and storing herbs!
Yesterday, a group of us worked under the high top to harvest broccoli, collards, carrots, and kale. It was really fun to search for and find the broccoli among the leaves.
On day 1 we got to meet everyone, get introduced to the farm, & pull carrots!
Hi, my name is Johnathan Pulliam! I am a third-year student majoring in Environmental Resource Science. Gardening has always been a part of my life, so I feel right at home at the UGArden. Over the last few years of volunteering at the UGArden, it quickly became my favorite spot in Athens. I cannot wait to spend the semester here, continuing to learn from the best and giving back to the community that has given so much to me!
